College for Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities
What Is It?
Beyond Limits, a collaborative partnership venture based at Bethany College, offers a two-year, residential post-secondary Christian campus experience and Beyond Limits life skills certificate for qualified young adults with developmental disabilities. The program includes a customized selection of audited Bethany classes, independent living skills courses, and on-campus job placement and coaching to gain work skills in Bethany's student work/study program.
Why Is It Needed?
The semi-independent living experience provided by a residential college is an important intermediate step to independent adult living. The need is even more important for young adults who are challenged with a disability. But for many, especially those with developmental disabilities, the opportunity does not exist. Beyond Limits provides young adults with disabilities the opportunity to live semi-independently in a supportive, faith-based college setting.
