LIFE Mississauga - Learning Independence for Future Empowerment


 

 What is L.I.F.E.?

 
​​
​​​​​
 
LIFE Mississauga serves young people who have a disability and are transitioning into a more independent lifestyle. The program provides participants with a learning environment to expand their social and professional skills while practicing the daily responsibilities of adulthood. Participants learn new skills through a combination of Life Skills Workshops, Transit Training, and Social & Recreational Outings.

In conjunction with our sponsors March of Dimes Canada offers the ten week LIFE program in Mississauga, Ontario, four times per year. ​

These Outings take participants into the community for activities like bowling, visiting parks, hiking, going to lunch and a movie, participating in organized sports, shopping, banking, and many others.

Along with the fun and adventure, participants will experience some challenges. Indeed, the very purpose of the program is to help find untapped resources within yourself and within your group, to help you discover that you are more capable than you know. The complimentary components of the program will foster independence within the individual.
