Ready to explore possibilities?

Starbridge is inviting you to a special, one-day-only Creating a Life After High School session! This program is designed for students and their family members to 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?

Box lunches and bottled water will be provided. Each family will receive a $10 gas gift card to assist with travel expenses.



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

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

For students 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 August 10, 2020. To register, call 585-224-7327 or email cal@starbridgeinc.org 

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


We will have fans to increase air circulation, sanitizing wipes for tables and chairs, and hand sanitizer at each table. All attendees will be required to:

  • Complete a health screening form upon arrival
  • Wear masks (Starbridge can provide masks if you do not have any)
  • Maintain 6’ social distance from other student/family pairs and instructors

If you or anyone else in your household has tested positive for coronavirus or been exposed to someone who may have coronavirus within 14 days of this session, please do not attend this session. We will offer it again in the future and want you to join us when you are well!
