iCan Dream Center is an ISBE Approved Transition Program that provides students with a supported, meaningful, and successful transition into adulthood. We are located in Hazel Crest, with certified teaching and paraprofessional staff, as well as related service providers who have the ability to support students and provide an environment which encourages self-growth for the students as they work toward their personal goals.
iCan Dream Center Transition Program teaches students how to generalize their knowledge and develop the critical skills needed to transition into a successful and fulfilling life. Goals are developed collaboratively between student, family, and transition staff using a person-centered approach.
The goal of the program is for students to be linked to the services they need upon their exit, whether it is employment, vocational training, volunteering or adult services. The linkage is individual and personal to each student. Students in this program will benefit from continuing their academic programs while also gaining paid vocational experiences within the community.
In addition, students in this program will have the following opportunities:
- · Career Speakers
- · Weekly community integration activities
