Living Resources’ CareerNext program is expanding its services to a third college campus! Set to begin at Hudson Valley Community College in the Fall of 2022, CareerNext provides support to students with autism and learning differences, helping them to succeed in college, earn an accredited degree, and live independently. Living Resources launched their CareerNext program in 2019 at SUNY Schenectady and expanded to SUNY Cobleskill soon after. This year, the program expects to support up to 40 new incoming students at Hudson Valley Community College.
“For decades, Hudson Valley’s faculty and staff have supported thousands of students with disabilities and helped them to advance and fulfill their personal, college, and career goals. Now, our new partnership with Living Resources continues that proud tradition and promises to enhance the level of support and resources that dozens of new students will receive,” said Roger Ramsammy, President of Hudson Valley Community College. Ronalyn Wilson, Assistant VP for Academic Affairs, HVCC agreed saying, “We are looking forward to this partnership. It is about time. Hudson Valley takes pride in its culturally diverse and inclusive campus.”
Living Resources’ CEO, Elizabeth Martin said, “We are going to be working closely with Hudson Valley Community College to support these students, providing assistance so that they can really succeed in their coursework.” Kevin Tully, Board President of Living Resources said, “Obtaining a college degree isn’t easy, especially for non-traditional learners … We are sincerely grateful to President Ramsammy and his dedicated team, for working with us to provide our students a life filled with education, opportunities, dignity, happiness, and independence.”
