Turning Points Tour Samford University, Birmingham

We were able to learn about the Turning Points Program offered on the campus of Samford University. Turning Points is a wonderful transition program designed for students ages 18-21. The purpose is to develop life skills, social communication, and employability skills through instruction and job-training opportunities through a partnership with Mountain Brook Schools and Samford. Opportunities are provided through various activities on campus for students to interact with typical peers in a natural setting.
