TechieForLife Offers Unique Developmental Gap Year to Autistic and Neurodivergent Students
TechieForLife (TFL) is introducing a unique co-ed gap year program aimed at helping autistic and neurodivergent young adults make a smooth transition to the next phase of their lives. The program provides experiential learning opportunities while gradually transitioning students into educational and career opportunities. TFL’s mentors trained in Neuro-Developmental Mentoring™ (NDM) support a positive student culture where connection and growth occur. During the program, students can expand their life skills, obtain work opportunities, develop deeper relationships, and explore different hobbies and interests.
According to TFL Executive Director and Co-Founder, Jason Grygla, “Gap years can be the perfect segue into a successful education or career path, especially for those who are neurodivergent.” TFL’s “Belong to Become” motto is embodied by the supportive environment created by the mentors. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities, overnight trips, and to obtain their driver’s license among other experiences.
TFL offers a chance for students to step into leadership opportunities, expand independent living skills, and explore their options in a safe and supportive environment. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
