The 4th Annual College Bound Resource Fair for students with disabilities is returning to Bellevue College on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The event is open to the public, and was created specifically for aspiring college students with disabilities as well as the families and educators in their lives.
“This is a great opportunity for the entire community to learn more about resources available to support the college, and career goals, of people with disabilities. We have vendors and presenters from across King County, and a panel of students who will speak to their own experience,” said Maile Allen, marketing specialist for the Occupational & Life Skills (OLS) program at Bellevue College.
Presentations include information sessions from six local college programs and additional breakout sessions from other local organizations.
Vendors and non-profits will also be on hand to provide more information about their support services. College Bound is free to attend and will be held in the Bellevue College cafeteria. Everyone from 9th-12th graders, high school graduates, young adults and adults are encouraged to attend.
Occupational & Life Skills (OLS) is an accredited associate degree program for adults with learning disabilities. In our uniquely supportive skills-based program, students apply academic knowledge through community activities, service learning, and social experiences. Students identify a career pathway, gain marketable, workplace-ready competencies, develop better interpersonal skills, and complete an internship in alignment with their career goals.
