The Bridge to Career in Human Service Program is a summer program offered by the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University. This program works in collaborations with the Brazos Valley Center For Independent Living to provide qualifying students with developmental disabilities access to a post-secondary education program along with special educational supports, which will prepare them for employment in the field of health and human services, specifically to become Direct Support Professionals.
