Youth skills, learning, ability

Take control of your future!

MERIL assists young people with disabilities as they set goals and plan for life after school. We believe young people should lead the way in making decisions about how to live their lives. We are here to help them develop the skills and resources they will need to live independent lives in their home, workplace, and community.
