The Eagle Connections Program at Tallahassee Community College (TCC) is a postsecondary transition program for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The program’s mission is to provide a course of study that includes career exploration, work experience, and social activities while empowering young adults with significant cognitive disabilities to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become independent and productive citizens. In addition, the program offers these young adults an opportunity to experience life on a college campus while developing self-determination, independent living, and employability skills.
