GWArc Receives $5,000 Grant from Foundation for MetroWest
June 01, 2017
GWArc is thrilled to receive a $5,000 grant from the Foundation for MetroWest for our School to Work Transitions Program. This award is especially meaningful as it was based on the recommendation of local high school students in the Foundation for MetroWest's Youth in Philanthropy Program.

GWArc's School to Work Transitions Program is run in collaboration with Waltham High School to support students with developmental disabilities and learning challenges as they transition from high school to work and productive adult life in the community.
