Transition to Work

The Weakley County Transition to Work program is designed to prepare students for the transition from school to work or post-secondary training through the delivery of five services:

Job Exploration Counseling -- Exploring career choices and requirements of specific jobs
Work-based Learning -- Engaging in paid or non-paid work experiences within school settings or community-based settings
Work-readiness Training -- Preparing students for the workplace through training and education on social, job specific and independent living skills
Self-advocacy Training -- Helping students learn more about themselves, their disability and how to interact with the world
Post-secondary Counseling -- Exploring options such as education programs, technical school certifications, vocational rehabilitation, etc.

We work with each high school and the alternative school, offering services customized for that student population.

We introduce our program to middle school students in preparation for entering the Transition to Work program.
