YALT is a community-based program offering young adults with developmental disabilities an opportunity to experience life on a college campus while developing functional skills. The program focuses on independence in the community, preparation for employment, continuation of the learning process, and establishing and maintaining friendships. The program is for individuals with developmental disabilities ages 18-23. Participants need to be enrolled in the Home and Community Based Waiver, linked with an agency and have a service coordinator who can assist with the Medicaid process and referrals.
