Tree Fort! Youth Program

Our Tree Fort DTT Youth Program is designed for teens and young adults ages 14-22 with developmental disabilities.

It’s designed for students who are still in school but are approaching a time when they will be exiting school and moving on to the next phase of their lives.

Our program helps students develop their pathways to the future. Participants go through vocational curriculum and explore future opportunities while practicing social skills and working toward their goals.

Alex is a Member of our Avondale LEAF Program and an advocate for Tree Fort. Along with our staff, he visits area high schools to tell students about The Opportunity Tree. Pictured above is a speech that he gives at area schools.

What Students Learn

  • Holistic Learning Environment: Our program seamlessly integrates center-based and community-based services, offering enriching after-school programming throughout the academic year and structured day programming during the summer. This creates a dynamic learning environment catering to diverse needs.
  • Personal Development: Beyond job preparation, our commitment extends to fostering a well-rounded set of skills essential for life beyond the classroom. Students engage in learning opportunities covering life skills, social skills, physical fitness, and the principles of healthy living.

  • Transition Support Services: Recognizing the pivotal moment when students are transitioning from high school, we stand as a reliable resource for families. Our comprehensive services are designed to offer robust support to both the youth and their families during this crucial phase.

In every facet of our program, we are dedicated to cultivating an atmosphere of professional excellence and engagement. At The Opportunity Tree, we understand the significance of preparing students for the journey ahead, providing them with the tools and support needed for a successful transition into the next chapter of their lives.
