The Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP)TM of Progressive Center for Independent Living (PCIL) uses a model incorporating group, peer, and one-on-one mentoring to promote the successful transition of RAMPTM youth to employment, continued learning opportunities, and independent living. The mentoring program uses adult volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor can help youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.

Are you a parent of a student with an intellectual and/or developmental disabilities between the ages of 14-24?
Are you interested in how Facebook Messenger might be used as a tool to coach families on planning for employment?
The purpose of this study is to test the impact of an individualized motivational communication strategy on planning for employment in the community. We are also exploring how individuals with I/DD and family members use information and supports to develop an employment vision, and move from that vision to an employment outcome. All participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card in appreciation of their time and effort in participating in this study.
To register, or to get more information, please contact John at email@example.com or 617-287-4345.
