Program Highlights

  • Evaluation in Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES) Lab, designed to identify potential career tracks based on interest and ability
  • Individualized skill development to hone work, social and daily living skills needed to be successful in the employment track of choice
  • On-campus internship or paid campus position with a job coach
  • Identify and secure a long-term paid position in the community 

Vocational Bridge is designed with the flexibility of meeting the needs of students where they currently are – and to help them determine and arrive where they want to go. The goal of the program is to place students in part-time or full-time jobs, capable of working without the assistance of a job coach.

Dates and times vary based on school schedule and need.

It gives me a great sense of comfort to know that he is learning skills now that are meaningful to him that he can take with him for the rest of his life."
