Giant Step is an ideal alternative for academically able young adults who have challenges that compromise their ability to live on a college campus. While living in a supportive environment that promotes growth in the area of executive functioning and social skills, a post-secondary student attending a local college/vocational technical training receives academic and social supports to maximize success.
Giant Step maintains a cooperative relationship with BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) to provide technical and certificate programs for students who want to pursue specific career training.
Members of the community can inquire about participating in Giant Step Services.
