with us this school year!
Get Ready to Own the World
 
 
The Lighthouse Transition Program is a comprehensive nine-month program that runs from October to June. We practice independent living skills, school and work success skills, and interpersonal skills so that you become ready to take on your future world.
 
The program has two integrated components:
 
1. Five in-person mini camps that run from Friday afternoons to Sunday afternoons. We provide the transportation.
2. Weekly one-hour remote sessions, either group or individual, depending on your goals.

The Transition Program is open to youth 14 to 21 years old who have visual impairment or blindness and are still in school (middle school, high school or college).  The program enrolls youth and young adults from across the state of Minnesota.
