What is the ACCESS Program?

The ACCESS Program at Broward Technical Colleges is designed to prepare individuals with disabilities to earn a competitive job and learn the skills necessary for everyday community activities. The community-based program is geared towards adults ages 18 to 22.

Education includes:

  • Social and pragmatic skills

  • Work experience
  • Supported employment
  • Transition skills
