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 Educator from the Arc of Yates. In addition, there are currently three Inclusion Specialists, and a one-on-one Instructional Assistant on campus to help support and guide students throughout their day at college, as well as at work/volunteer opportunities in the community.
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.
