Be A VOLstarter-FUTURE Program

The FUTURE program, a part of the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, helps students with intellectual and developmental disabilities successfully transition from high school to adult life. It is a two-year course of study, under the direction of Tom Beeson, which empowers students to achieve gainful employment in the community.  The program helps those unique, highly motivated young adults whose disability is characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior.   The students attend college classes, take program courses and also do internships on or off campus.  FUTURE students typically received special education services while in high school, graduating with either a regular diploma or a special diploma.

To help the FUTURE program offer scholarship opportunities to those who otherwise might not have the chance to participate in this program due to financial limitations, be a VOLstarter and donate today!
