Ready to explore possibilities?

Creating a Life after High School is a five-session program designed for students and their family members as they plan for life after high school. Learn about opportunities and find answers to the questions that are on everyone’s minds:

  • Where can I live?
  • What are the opportunities for learning?
  • Where can I work?
  • What can I do for fun?
  • What agencies can help to provide support?

The individuality of each student is valued and encouraged throughout the sessions.

At the end of this program, participants will apply for funds that will be used to support their future vision. PLEASE NOTE: Participants must attend all sessions to be eligible to receive funding.


Registration is open to all students in Monroe County NY, ages 15-21, who are living at home and who have established DDRO eligibility. A family member/guardian or family friend must accompany the student to all sessions.

For people receiving traditional OPWDD-funded services, our grant from Region 1 Developmental Disabilities Regional Office covers the cost of your participation.

For people with a Self-Directed budget, OPWDD requires your budget to cover the cost of participation. Please check with your Support Broker if you have questions about utilizing your budget for this program.

Registration is required by September 28. This workshop is FREE to students and family members.

To register, call Christa Knaak at 585-224-7370 or 800-650-4967 ext. 370 or email cknaak@starbridgeinc.org

Please request special accommodations at least two weeks before the event.
