Project Forward Program at Cape Cod CC Extends Fall Application Deadline

August 17, 2020

The Project Forward Program at Cape Cod Community College, which provides students with disabilities the opportunity gain and maintain vocational skills that are key to independent living and long-term success, is extending their application deadline for the Fall 2020 academic year to September 14 and delaying the start of classes until September 21, 2020.

“We realize the difficult position families are in when deciding if students are going back to school,” said Dr. Heather Bish, Director of Project Forward. “We want to ensure that anyone interested in participating in the program this Fall has the opportunity to do so. By pushing our start back a bit, we’re hoping that our families will have more time to learn about Project Forward, what we’re doing to keep our programming safe through remote instruction and job training, and how it can benefit them.”

Along with the pushed out application and start date deadlines, Project Forward is also hosting two virtual information sessions for the Fall. Interested families can attend virtually on Thursday, September 3 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. or on Tuesday, September 8 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Project Forward’s curriculum promotes training, independent living skills, social development and creative growth. It helps students gain employability skills through a combination of classroom instruction and “real world” learning. Project Forward students represent a wide range of learning styles, strengths, challenges, and cultural diversity.
