Parents and relatives of young people with intellectual disabilities, as well as educators and area employers, are invited to learn more about the College and Career Access Project (CCAP), a postsecondary, vocationally-focused noncredit education program for North Shore residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism, ages 18-26, developed  by North Shore Community College (NSCC) and the Northeast Arc (NeArc).

A breakfast information session will be held on Tuesday, June 10, 8:30-10 a.m. at NSCC’s Danvers Campus, 1 Ferncroft Road, in the Berry Building Cafeteria. The event is free but as space is limited, registration is required. The information session will feature a variety of speakers including:

  • Patricia A. Gentile, Ed. D., President, North Shore Community College
  • Northeast ARC representatives
  • A panel of college transition program students and parents.

NSCC and NeArc,, who both provide programming to help youth up to age 26 participate in education and training after their high school years, have partnered to offer the innovative college-based education and workforce development program.
