MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Assistant Superintendent of Academics and Student Programs for the Phoenix - Talent School District tells NEWSWATCH 12 that their transitional program is giving young adults with disabilities a chance to succeed.
The program started back in September.
“Our students learn everything about caring for themselves so we have a washer and a dryer so they can learn to do laundry fold socks a do dishes," Tiffanie Lambert said.

The program helps young adults with disabilities live independently and learn how to get jobs.
It is for young adults who are 18 to 21.

"Even after they walk across that graduation stage we are still going to give them a little helping hand to support them to learn to live independently," Lambert adds.

To participate in the program they must have graduated from Phoenix High School.
