Ground broken in March for the Marino Campus

We are very excited to announce the commencement of the renovations. On March 19, 2013, ground was broken, and the first sounds of saws and hammers were welcome music to our ears. Due to the construction on the site, we are unable to facilitate tours at this time, but we do anticipate opening the application process in early Summer and offering tours in the Fall. We will continue to keep you posted with emails on our progress and invite you to visit our new website, www.marinocampus.org which we will update regularly with exciting news and announcements. Thank you for your patience and continued support of Marino Campus – a first-of-its-kind opportunity for our young adults.

The Marino Campus - A Formidable Challenge

While high school graduates prepare for the “rite of passage” of college, most young adults with developmental disabilities, like autism, find themselves in limbo. Without the academic qualifications to pursue post-secondary education, nor the job skills to find meaningful employment, there is often little for them to do but simply... wait for a chance.

Statistically speaking, their chances are slim. There are more than 340,000 students in Florida who have a developmental disability. Seventy-nine percent of this group will not qualify for further educational opportunities.  Ninety percent will be unemployed.  What is all the more foreboding is that a mere eight percent of companies in America report hiring people with disabilities, which makes futurejob prospects equally remote.
