A big THANK YOU to every wonderful and kind person who supported the MBUSD CHOICE Team 2016 Season Kick-Off event April 20th at the Manhattan Beach County Library. Your presence let us know that our community is ready, willing, and able to help our young adult neurodiverse population succeed in their individual transition goals. To all of those who showed support online, or were unable to attend in person, your emotional and financial support was felt in the room by all. Thank you all!
A BIG THANK YOU also to the growing number of local businesses and civic organizations opening your workplaces and hearts to support the CHOICE Transition Program and the 2016 CHOICE Team.
