Beginning this fall, a new partnership between Women’s League Community Residences (WLCR), a lifespan social services organization, and Yeshiva University will make a Jewish collegiate experience accessible to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Called the Makor College Experience, the three-year, non-degree program enables young men with intellectual disabilities to become a part of the YU community on the University’s Wilf Campus as they gain skills, explore opportunities and transition to a life of independence. Students in the program will begin their day immersed in a special Judaic studies program in YU’s batei midrash (study halls), then take self-contained courses...
