The pre-employment transition services program engages students age 16-22 with disabilities in workplace readiness, career exploration and work experience activities. This program encourages students to prepare for and maximize their successful transition from life as a student to life as an independent community member.
In this 8-week summer program, students participate in:
- pre-enrollment intake
- classroom training to include career exploration, soft skills, self-advocacy and workplace readiness
- onsite work experience in retail and hospitality
- program graduation celebration
Throughout the 8 weeks Goodwill’s Employment Skills Trainers provide daily support to a small group of program participants in the classroom and at each work experience site.
