A Comprehensive, Interdisciplinary Curriculum

We use a research-backed curriculum that addresses real-world challenges and goals. Our comprehensive, interdisciplinary curriculum covers three domains. Each domain has various competencies and sub-competencies in addition to learning modules.

Flexible Lessons to Meet Unique Needs and Goals

We provide lessons at three levels of increasing complexity. This approach allows students to continue growing and refining their independent living skills. From daily living and interpersonal relationships to employment, students can master the skills they need to live their best lives.

Engaging Activities That Offer Real-world Skill Practice

During the program, students engage in daily living activities that involve both abstract and tangible concepts. A key part of our curriculum is community-based learning experiences. Our students have the opportunity to go out into our community and practice the skills they’re developing.

The mission of TSC Is Spreading Petals is simple: spread joy, beauty, and hope while providing job training to MyCIL’s Transitional Skills Center students. They organize the donated flowers, rearranging them anew, and then deliver them to the elderly and critically ill.
