I've Got A Ticket To Ride! May 1-30

Updated: Apr 14, 2019

April 4, 2019 will go down as a milestone for Nebraska Transition College: The first day of our first classes. It has been a long time coming.

And it’s just the beginning.

We are already hard at work planning the next steps – adding two more classes this fall, and one more location. But none of this will be accomplished without your support. We need to keep the momentum going, and we need you to help us.

Let me introduce you to Flat Stuey. You will be seeing a lot of him from now until May 30! From May 1 – May 30, we will be holding our “I’ve Got a Ticket to Ride” fundraising campaign. I will be giving up my car for one month to ride public transportation to and from any and all appointments with NTC, classes, coffee . . . you name it.

Two reasons.

First, we need to raise $10,000 to stay on track to write programming and offer classes. The actual cost for our tuition is above $1,000 per student, per class. We are offering them for a much lower cost to the student, and this happens because of generous support from you.

Second, our fall class offerings will include a Community Navigation class, and there is simply no better way to write a syllabus than experiencing it first-hand. I will be blogging about my experiences, and you can follow along through Facebook and our website.

We would also like you to get involved beyond a financial contribution – which is why we have created a Flat Stuey! Download your own Flat Stuey here, print it out, slap on a popsicle stick and take him with you on your own public transportation journey – ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Then, send us a picture at We might just share your story during the month of May!

A bus. One month. One Man. One Flat Stuey . . . and a whole HOST of wonderful, giving hearts.

With gratitude,

Dr. Stuart Stofferahn

Executive Director
