6th Annual College Bound Resource Fair

Courtyard by the BC planetarium

The 6th Annual College Bound Resource Fair for students with disabilities returns Saturday, Feb. 5, from 9 – 11 a.m. This free event is open to the public and is geared toward aspiring college students with disabilities as well as the families and educators in their lives.

“I am very happy with my decision to go to college because I can get my associate degree and further my career goals,” said Panida Lamb, a student in the OLS Bellevue College program. “There are a variety of resources available to college students with disabilities. If you cannot find them, someone will help you find the resources you need.”

The event includes pre-recorded presentations from five local college programs and various businesses with resources for aspiring college students with disabilities. Vendors and nonprofits will also be on hand to provide more information about their support services. College Bound will be held online via Zoom. Everyone from 9th-12th graders, high school graduates, young adults, and adults is encouraged to attend this free event.

Occupational & Life Skills (OLS) is an 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.
