Becoming Independent Participants


Becoming Independent’s Educational programs are founded on the understanding that all people have the right to choose their own educational and personal paths and the right to be valued as active learners. BI tailors each person’s day to their expressed preferences, interests, and goals. The focus is on what’s important to, and what’s important for the person. These services include building skills in areas of health, wellness, nutrition, socialization, communication, arts, music, self advocacy, and personal growth and direction. Our programs are offered in-person and virtually to ensure that our community remains connected. BI partners with community members and organizations to create volunteer, recreational, and employment opportunities that result in developing skills that align with the individuals personal goals.
