Youth Transition Program
The Youth Transition Program partners with schools, Vocational Rehabilitation, and the business community to form partnerships that help students to develop work skills, habits, attitudes, and knowledge that will empower them to have future success in the working world.
Employers can make a positive impact on those students, and help connect them to the world of work by providing a variety of work experiences. By building partnerships we can create opportunities for our youth that will invest in skilled workers for tomorrow.
