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 Educational Associate from the Arc of Yates. In addition, there are currently five Direct Support Professionals on campus to help support and guide students throughout their day at college, as well as at work/volunteer opportunities in the community overseen by the customized employment coordinator.
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.
