The Florida Center for Students with Unique Abilities at the University of Central Florida (the Center) invites local public and private schools (operating pursuant to s. 1002.42) serving students in grades 9 – 12 to apply for resources to establish a Florida College and Career Transition Club (CCT Club).
The purpose of the CCT Clubs is to increase awareness of Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Program opportunities and help students with intellectual disabilities prepare for and access those opportunities across Florida. CCT Clubs will be inclusive, with membership adequately representing these three groups: (1) students with intellectual disabilities, (2) students with disabilities other than intellectual disabilities, and (3) students without disabilities. Club advisors will support students to learn and explore career pathways and postsecondary education options. Students will work together to identify and explore college and career opportunities, engage in mentoring, and participate in events and activities within the school, community, and at local IHEs to build college and career transition plans.
The Center will provide funds to cover a CCT Club sponsor stipend and club activities beginning as early as February 2018.
The application packet (pdf) and application cover page (Word form) provide specific details regarding how to apply for program resources to establish and implement a College and Career Transition Club.
