Milton Hershey School: Transitional Living

Milton Hershey School high school seniors live in apartment style residences with four other students of the same gender and are given support from residential living staff members, in a program known as Transitional Living.

The program’s organization allows an experiential environment where students regularly make decisions involving the use of practical skills such as, money and time management. Students enhance and practice life skills necessary for living on their own.

TL allows an experiential environment where students make decisions involving money and time management. Students are mentored by residential living staff coordinators and learn necessary life skills. They learn how to enhance their skills in planning, shopping for and cooking meals, handling the chores associated with caring for their own apartment, and the necessary social skills, which enable our students for success post-graduation.
