Goal

'Student Links' is an initiative by Community Living Ontario. Our goal is to promote inclusiveness for those living with an intellectual disability. Student Links is a program specifically for students between the ages of 14-21. We match these students with a mentor in their community with whom they share common interests. Students are provided with an opportunity to explore different roles based on their interests, to practise hard and soft skills, and to network. This helps them form decisions about the choices available to them upon graduation.
