St. Lawrence NYSARC Transitions Program

Agency and Placement Location: 95 Main Street, Canton, NY, 13617 (one mile from campus)

Transportation: Need Own Transportation, this means that CBL did not automatically reserve a SLU vehicle. Therefore, it is the student’s responsibility to access available resources to secure transportation. In these cases, a placement site is either considered within walking/biking distance, or is within five miles of campus. Here are some alternative transportation options to consider: use a personal car that you are an insured driver for, walk, or bike. In some cases, it is possible to reserve a university vehicle; however, a student MUST complete SLU's Driver Certification training in order to utilize this transportation.The CBL office does not endorse the idea of students carpooling in personal vehicles and should only be considered after all other options have been exhausted. Should carpooling be necessary, both the driver and any riders must complete transportation waivers.

Mission: According to their website," Transitions' mission is to empower young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through self directed goal setting. Transitions will focus on independent living skills and community engagement activities."
