Molloy Opportunity for Successful Transition (MOST) Program

Molloy Opportunity for Successful Transition
 in collaboration with
The Mary Quinn's Mark Foundation

MOST is designed to afford a college experience to developmentally disabled adults from the ages of 22-27 years old. 

The Molloy Opportunity for Successful Transition is a program designed for  individuals with developmental disabilities to attend classes to increase social and academic skills. Classes will be given at the Molloy College Rockville Centre Campus.  The program course areas include health, wellness, budgeting, literacy, citizenship and employment. MOST allows students to connect and interact with peers on campus.  The program is designed for three years, building upon skills gained in previous semesters.  The program is designed so that the students gain academic and social skills that will allow the student to transition into employment.
