NYIT community playing tug of war.

I-to-I Summer Program

The I-to-I (Introduction to Independence) Summer Program was created by educators who understand the necessity for a healthy and well-planned transition into the world after a young adult's secondary education. The goal of the program is to maximize movement toward independence by creating a reasonable "loosening of the reins" in an environment that rewards responsibility, involvement, and decision making.

I-to-I is a five-week residential summer experience that includes all the skill-building and experiential learning associated with VIP. It is offered to students who are 17 or older, and are either interested in VIP academic year programming or are in-between years at VIP. Students can enjoy various social/recreational opportunities, participate in the VIP curriculum, and are fully integrated in NYIT campus/residential life.

During the summer, students will build foundational and global employment skills. Pre-employment skill building and employment exploration are the emphasis. Students will have hands-on visits at a variety of work sites, will meet with a range of employers to hear about what they are looking for in an employee, and will meet with NYIT faculty and staff to explore several work environments.
