Join Transitions for camps that focus on transitioning from school and home to independent living!

High school students and young adults are invited to Transitions' state-of-the-art Adirondack facility for three days of informative seminars and fun with like-minded peers. At the camps, participants who are diagnosed with learning differences will get answers to important questions about their journey into adulthood. There will be seminars, enrichment classes, a keynote speech from a successful individual with a learning difference and more. This is the perfect opportunity to experience a taste of Transitions  and meet Transitions instructors, mentors, alumni and current Apprentices.

Apprentice Happenings

Transitions is proud to have so many talented and successful students in its ranks. The following are just a few examples of Apprentices achieving excellence in their community.
Transitions Apprentices MaryBeth and Joel gave back to the community this Thanksgiving by preparing and serving
m eals to local seniors. Volunteerism is an important part of the Transitions experience. Not only does it boost the confidence, self-esteem and skills of the Apprentices, it teaches them the importance of helping others and making the community a better place.  
Congratulations to Apprentice Garett, whose Transitions internship as a maintenance technician has turned into a job! Garett, who is also a full-time student at Fulton-Montgomery Community College, will continue working toward his degree in Construction Management.
Apprentice Olivia, right, studies at both Schenectady County Community College and  Fulton-Montgomery Community College. Not only is she an extraordinarily gifted actress and singer, she is also an accomplished choreographer who has helped stage several local productions. She is shown here starring in a recent production of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts.

The Transitions program builds school skills, life skills and  independence for high school graduates and young adults with autism spectrum disorders and other learning differences. Its specialty isn't just in teaching students how to study or learn a trade - it's in showing its students that they can live a life that even they never dreamed of.

Experience a three-week taste of independent living and Transitions training at the 2016 Summer Immersion Experience.

We accept applications for Apprenticeships on a rolling basis. If you are diagnosed with a learning difference and motivated to achieve success in college and independent life, there may be a place at Transitions for you.

I miss everyone that I met at Transitions every day. I actually started to miss everyone the day I left the program. When I was there I wanted to be home, but at home, all I want is to be over at Transitions with the friends I made. I really hope I do not lose them due to distance. I had the best time of my life at this program and hope I can come back there again.
