We are a health and wellness program that supports and enhances social skills, cognitive skills, self-esteem, creativity, and work skills for young adults with developmental disabilities facing moderate to severe life challenges and their families.  

About Us

Our community sponsors are social groups, community organizers, agencies, or companies who volunteer their time to create meaningful social connections and relationships within and among the BCPP community.

Community Inclusion Sponsors

We seek highly motivated, dependable, personable and adaptable students who want to grow and enhance professional knowledge and skills in an innovative, challenging, strengths-based, and training-focused community program.

Internships and Practicums

BCPP students participate in outreach activities that benefit the larger Auburn/Opelika community. Participating in these activities creates a purpose for these students and allows recognition of their individual strengths.

Community service and outreach activities include: creating art for homebound senior community members, a food drive to benefit food insecure persons, a holiday toy drive benefiting families with limited income, and a blanket drive that serves sick, elderly, and financially limited persons.
