The DRIVE Program Director and DRIVE Program Manager are members of the management team at the Arc of Yates. Both are on-site at Keuka College on a full time basis to oversee the day to day operations of this college based program.

The core curriculum is delivered to students by a full-time Special Education Teacher  from the Penn Yan Central School District.   Life skills and supplementary curriculum are provided throughout each day by a Special Education Teacher from the and Educational Associates from the Arc of Yates.  In addition, there is currently one Direct Support Professional and a Teaching Assistant on campus to help support and guide students throughout their day at college.

A unique aspect of the program allows us to offer a myriad of experiential learning opportunities to Keuka students of all majors who wish to become mentors to students with intellectual disabilities on the college campus.
