This program works in collaborations with the Brazos Valley Center For Independent Living to provide qualifying students with developmental disabilities access to a post-secondary education. They also provide special educational supports, which will prepare them for employment in the field of health and human services. The goal is for students to become Direct Support Professionals.
They also offer a transitional summer training program to support students in their adjustment to living in College Station including independent living and transportation. The program also helps them acclimate to the college culture, schedule, classes and instruction.
All students will stay in a dormitory housing on the Texas A&M University campus during the B2C summer training program. Students will move in during the second week of July and the students will have a fellow B2C student as a roommate in their fully furnished rooms.
