The Life After School Transition Committee (LAST) is a group of service providers in Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows that work to support and empower young people with diverse abilities to transition into life after high school.
We do this by highlighting & promoting resources within our community and celebrating community & economic inclusion.
Annual LAST Committee events include:
- A Transition Resource Fair at Thomas Haney Secondary School in April.
Topics and displays include employment services & agencies, post-secondary education, financial planning advice, recreational and social activities, transportation assistance, and more! Event photos are posted on the LAST Committee Facebook Page
- An Employer Recognition event, and
- A Community Inclusion BBQ & Party at the Greg Moore Youth Centre in October to celebrate Community Living Month. Community Living Month recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of people with developmental disabilities.
Thank you to the Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears for providing food and drinks and The ACT Arts Centre for a Member Grant to help provide the entertainment!!
