Project LIFE

Project LIFE is a combined education and work experience program for students with disabilities. Project LIFE is focused on building the foundational skills that students will need for employment and independence in adulthood. The program consists of 25 percent classroom instruction, 25 percent instruction in daily living skills lab and 50 percent unpaid entry-level job training experiences in a variety of community businesses. The classroom instruction portion of the program introduces skills in team building, personal financial literacy, social communication, self-advocacy, technology, employability, independent living and functional independence in the community.

Applicants to Project LIFE must have met their high school graduation requirements, have acceptable attendance records and demonstrate behaviors appropriate for the community setting.

Project LIFE programs are a collaboration between Greene County ESC, Butler Tech, Greene County Board of DD, Wright State University, local school districts and area businesses.
