Inspired by the
Minnesota Independence College and Community (MICC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit vocational and life skills training program for young adults with learning differences and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Our mission is to transform the lives of individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorders and learning differences.
Since our founding in 1996, MICC has remained dedicated to helping our students make successful transitions towards independent, sustainable living. We believe our students/graduates can live independent, self-sufficient, whole lives. Having learned the skills to open doors previously closed to them, the future of our students is limitless.
We are a lifelong partner to an individual who learns differently. We are MICC.
We are all the same, we want a sense of purpose, an identity, and to be able to contribute to our community. Having a reason to get up each morning, and a place to go and to have someone be excited to see you is exactly why employment and community is so important.
