Summer 2023 Sessions: Pre-Employment Transition Services
We are offering two separate courses (four sessions each) this summer to help students with disabilities prepare for employment after high school. The first course will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on June 20, June 22, June 27, and June 29. The second course will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on July 11, July 13, July 18, and July 20. The sessions will be held at the St. Joseph MERIL office.
The curriculum will contain skill-building workshops, one-on-one mentoring, and socialization activities with peers. Topics include: career exploration, building a resume, understanding the importance of first impressions during a job interview, the use of social media, self-advocacy, and developing skills to live independently through financial and household management.
The sessions are available at no cost to students who are 14-21 years old, who have an IEP or are 504 eligible, and who will not graduate this year.
