Project Forward

Project Forward is a nationally renowned program that provides vocational training for students with intellectual disabilities.  Project Forward was the first program in Massachusetts to be granted Comprehensive Transition Program status by the US Department of Education enabling students to apply for and receive financial aid (if qualified). 

Housed on the campus of Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable, MA, Project Forward has been nationally recognized by the United States Department of Education and The School-to-Work Outreach Project as an exemplary school-to-work model serving students with intellectual disabilities since 1988. Project Forward has also been cited by 4H/University of Massachusetts-Amherst for its Peer Leadership program which empowers college students with disabilities to communicate effectively with peers and community agencies concerning disability awareness and advocacy.
