CCC Hosting Info Sessions for Intellectual Disabilities Program

 

Camden County College’s program for those with intellectual disabilities has openings for students who could benefit from individualized attention as they transition from school to work.

 

The Garden State Pathways Transitional Program is open to any student who has an intellectual or cognitive disability and is at least 18 years of age. To qualify for consideration, each potential participant must meet state high school requirements and receive Individuals with Disabilities Education Act funding.

 

This selective program provides individually tailored assistance to participating students as they develop academic, life and career skills and gain work experiences. Enrollees have full access to all Blackwood Campus facilities, including the fitness center, the cyber café and the library.

 

Garden State Pathways will host information sessions for prospective enrollees and their parents at the following times on the following dates:

 

● 2 p.m. Feb. 28 (with an inclement weather date of March 6).

 

● 7 p.m. March 1 (with an inclement weather date of March 8).

 

Both will take place in Civic Hall, which is located in the Connector Building on the Blackwood Campus. The campus is at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

 

To attend one of the information sessions or for additional details about the program, contact coordinator Bernadette M. Gismonde by telephone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4503, or via e-mail at bgismonde@camdencc.edu.
