LAST Committee

LAST Committee LogoThe 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.
