Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Adult Transition Center at GCC

WHAT:

The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the move of the Gloucester County Adult Transition Center (ACT) to the campus of Gloucester County College.

Created in 2009, the Gloucester County Adult Transition Center is the only program in New Jersey to provide services and skills training for young adults with disabilities ages 16 to 24 years to enhance their transition into adulthood and into the 'world of work'. Individualized transition assistance directs the young adults toward pathways that will enhance employability and life skills through certified academic and career courses; lifelong learning programs; occupational training; job interview preparation and more.

The move to GCC enables the young adults with disabilities to have ready access to the College facilities and resources including the career center, fitness center, cafeteria, library, college center, and the social and cultural activities on the campus. The move from GCIT to GCC also provides a direct NJ Transit bus route to the GCC campus.
