Our Goals & Objectives

Our goal is to provide a positive, safe and supportive environment where highly independent young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders may successfully experience a wide range of real-life activities. We work to create opportunities for building friendships and peer groups, and establish a community network of highly independent young adults with autism for long-term social interaction.

Summer on the Hill actively engages participants in relevant, real-world academic, vocational, independent living, social and physical fitness activities. Participants will gain this experience by actively participating in an accepting environment where they will receive appropriate encouragement and coaching.
