PACER Programs for You
If you are a student or young adult with a disability, and you are starting to think a lot more about your future, you have come to the right place! Do you want to get more education after high school? Do you want to work? Where do you want to live? Do you want to learn to drive, or learn to ride the public buses and trains? Do you want to have people in your life to help you take care of your health or finances? And what do you want to do in your free time? The videos and other resources here will help you with these questions, and they were all made by, with, or for young people with disabilities like yourself.
