The D.R.I.V.E. (diversity, responsibility, inclusion, vision, and experiential learning) program provides a unique service for developmentally-delayed 18 to 21 year-old special education students.
The program is funded by the Penn Yan Central School District, administered and coordinated by Yates County ARC, and located on the Keuka College campus.
In the program, Keuka College students (sophomores, juniors and seniors who are human services-related majors—psychology, occupational therapy, education and social work) serve as peer mentors to young adults with developmental disabilities as they assimilate into the college environment and explore their personal goals.
Classes that students have participated in include Introduction to Psychology, American Sign Language I, Music Appreciation, Visual Design, and Food and Society. (Read more at KC Currents »)
