RBC Future Launch has generously invested $20,000 in the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation’s transitional programs for young adults with Down syndrome, including Reading and Communications Plus, Social Communication and Navigation, and Money Math & Budgeting. These programs equip individuals with Down syndrome with skills that are essential to their success in the workplace and their ability to live independently.
DSRF is proud to be partnering with RBC for their RBC Future Launch initiative. Together, we will prepare individuals with Down syndrome find meaningful work and bring their unique contributions to our society.
