Our School-to-Work Transition program has helped students in high school that are struggling with graduation and are interested in pursuing a path from school to work.
What do students do when the school bus stops coming… or when their world of school activities and school life are transitioning into the world of adulthood and work? Many youths with disabilities will continue to need some type of support after they leave high school to find a job, live on their own, and take part in activities and services in their community. This can be a confusing time for youth and their family members. Some of these youth will be eligible for services from various types of agencies.
- Help with navigating the intricate system of services after school.
- Job readiness and soft skills.
- Self-help skills.
- A head-start to employment.
- Assisting with referrals to the appropriate agencies and other agreed-upon services.
Entrance Criteria & Qualifications...
Adult eligibility for agency services is determined based on different standards than those used by schools when providing student services. It is important for youth and their families to begin to understand the adult world requirements as they plan for the future. We have contracts with the Counties and provide private services for students 16 to 21.
