What students and experts are saying

Natalie Navigator participant

“The Navigator program and my coach, Leslie, have helped prepare me for college and life as an independent adult while living with a visual disability. They have helped me better understand my visual impairment and introduced me to the tools, knowledge, and resources I needed to better function in my everyday life. I am so grateful for what this program has taught me.”

Marisol Carmona Transition Program Specialist

“Navigator coaches help participants to overcome challenges, shed light on their strengths, and pave a path forward that complements their individual interests and skills.”
