|Mentor Young Adults with Disabilities at USU|
|The PEER Project is seeking student volunteers to mentor young adults with intellectual disabilities that participate in the PEER project here on campus. In particular we are looking for students that can help participants participate in social activities here on campus including athletic events, dances, movies, etc.
Project PEER (Postsecondary Education, Employment, and Research), located on the USU campus, is a unique program that supports students with intellectual disabilities. A base classroom, housed in the Center for Persons with Disabilities (CPD), supports students, aged 18-21, who are enrolled in special education in local education agencies. Each student has a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and engages in employment internships and social and recreational activities located in various campus and community locations.
