LIFT grant to help students transition into college, workplace

Life and Independence for Today (LIFT) recently received a $5,000 grant from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield for its Peer Based Transition Support Services (PBTSS) program designed to help students with disabilities during life's major transitional phases.The program uses a mentorship approach which puts students in contact with someone, not in an authoritative role, but with a friend who has already navigated this difficult road themselves.
