Our Brighton Launch Adult Program is designed for young adults 18+ with learning challenges, who are preparing to move from school to post-school activities, including employment or supported employment, further education, independent or supported living, and community participation.

Launch is a ten month program providing a comprehensive, all-inclusive curriculum focusing on job preparation training, skills for independent living, facilitation of social skills and friendships, development of recreation & leisure pursuits and increasing functional abilities in all areas. We offer both Full-time and Part-time programs running from September through the end of June.

Rather than a series of stand-alone courses, our ‘one-stop-shopping’ integrated program approach ensures that key goals are being addressed in a focused, consistent and synchronized manner across the curriculum, with experienced coach/facilitators who know the young adult very well.  Brighton Launch is not a time-limited program.  You can enroll for one year or several; you can remain connected to Launch in various ways throughout your life and career, returning for career assistance or job-training as needed, or participating in social groups.

The Launch program is located at 40 Wynford Drive, in suite 202. Our bright and cheerful space contains classrooms, a kitchen, a laundry room, a social enterprise production centre, a student lounge, and of course, a hub!

Brighton Launch is committed to providing an integrated and coordinated experience for young adults that leads to choices and opportunities, and a productive, satisfying adult life.

Please call and speak to our Program Manager, Raneta Krylov, M.A.D.S., BCBA, to arrange a visit to see Launch for yourself:
