Creating a Future


Creating a Future

Creating a Future is a transitional program that introduces high school students with disabilities to the job opportunities available to them on completion of their studies.

By providing hands-on experience in the competitive job market, the students are supported in the development of their identity as future members of the workforce. The program focuses on the acquisition of broad vocational skills through personal and professional support.

Furthermore, it introduces the participants to additional post-education programs, such as military or national service, and continuing education, according to each person’s preference.
