Graduate Living Community (GLC)
A unique community model providing an integrated transition to next level of independence after CIP.
As the critical need for longer-term housing options grows, CIP is responding by offering new lower cost and longer-term support options for students who are exiting our Full Year programs. CIP’s Graduate Living Communities (GLC) are unique post-CIP living communities focused on higher level skill development in areas of college academics, employment, social/interpersonal development, and executive functioning skills.
This unique community model provides an integrated transition to next level of independence after CIP and a tight-fitting peer group with an emphasis on social development. Participants must be enrolled in college and/or employed or pursuing employment. The GLC will be available on an invitation-only basis for students who have achieved certain benchmarks while enrolled in CIP’s full-year on-campus program.
The GLC mission is to continue to assist individuals transitioning out of the College Internship Program by:
- Assisting them to retain jobs and advance in their employment goals
- Helping them to learn household management and independence
- Continuing to build their skills to function in a larger social community
The goals of GLC are to help individuals:
- Become financially self-sufficient
- Build and maintain social connections
- Self-advocate and self-disclose
