The Adult Program Manager ensures these programs operate effectively and engages with the community to increase acceptance, opportunities, and career success for adults with Down syndrome. Effective operation of the programs includes making sure they are properly staffed with skilled and trained volunteers and follow structured curriculums that provide a high quality, outcome-driven program according to the program model developed by the National Program Team.
