StarThrower Group

Careers. Connections. Community.


CAREER.   COMMUNITY. CONNECTIONS.

Member driven, 
project focused

WHAT IS IT?  A place for people in their 20s and 30s with programming run BY MEMBERS, FOR MEMBERS, to explore careers and create connections in the community, with special focus on INCLUSION for adults with special needs in their 20s-30s. 

WHAT - ANOTHER DAY PROGRAM? 
Nope. We have programs. You can hang out with us during the day. But we are NOT a day program. This is like nothing you've ever seen before because it puts MEMBERS FIRST. Getting to really know all our members is our priority. Peer Mentors, staff, and community volunteers work together to help members meet the objectives they design.
