Welcome to Mixter Institute for Transition! My name is Robyn Castle, and I am the principal. I come to Mixter with a vast background of working with students at the transition age. I was a teacher in a transition program for 7 years, and the principal of a transition program in another county, prior to joining the Lincoln Park team. I am so proud of the work done by all of the students and staff at Mixter, and I am so lucky to be a part of the Mixter team.
At Mixter, we offer a post-high school program for young adults with autism, that reside in one of 17 districts in the Downriver/Dearborn communities. We, at the Mixter Institute for Transition, have a rich history of preparing students for the work force and to live as independent adults. We meet the needs of students on an individual basis, and work closely with students/families to achieve personal goals related to student transition plans. Our students have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of experiences such as, woodworking, gardening, cashiering and stocking.
Our students are also employed at various job sites throughout the downriver area. In addition, we run a wonderful resale shop that is located at Mixter, and is open to the public. Please feel free to drop off your donations during operating hours 9:00 am - 2:00 pm (Monday through Friday) or to stop in and find a treasure.
**NOTE: We are currently not accepting donations for the resale shop. We will let you know when donations can reconvene.
Please feel free to contact our main office with any questions at 313-389-0220 or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
