TEAM 26

Exited High School in GPPSS? Enter TEAM 26.

TEAM (26) is an acronym that stands for Training, Education, and Advocacy Model.

TEAM 26 is a membership-based program that helps young adults with special needs who have exited the Grosse Pointe Public School System (GPPSS) acquire skills that encourage and enable independence and meaningful engagement in the community while strengthening their self-worth and transitioning them to greater personal autonomy.

The curriculum-based learning modules offer participants valuable information in important life, social and job skills.  TEAM 26 program coordinators, Meaghan Post and Regan Wright have recently expanded this program by adding innovative activities to address life skills, physical fitness, health and wellness, with the development of social skills woven into every aspect of the program.

Curriculum components cover:

  • life management
  • daily living skills
  • self-advocacy
  • determination
  • on-site job training skills

TEAM 26 members invest time at Full Circle in opportunities where support coordinators assist them in the various micro-enterprise services including the recent launch of our newest venture, dog treats! TEAM 26 members also have social opportunities within the community.

  • At least 18 years of age (do not need to be age 26)
