This program helped us introduce Kylea to “real” life experiences with supports from the program,” shares Kylea’s mom. While in the program, Kylea learned independent living skills needed to one day live on her own and also interview skills that will help her feel confident while applying for jobs in the future.
After the Next Steps Summer Program ended, Kylea was hired by her job site, Fifth Street Pub. The Toledo Christian graduate greets customers, seats them, and supports the serving staff at the restaurant.
Kylea also participated in The Ability Center’s Auxiliary Style Show as a model.
