“Creating a Future”


Transitional Program
“Creating a Future”

In preparation for the transition from school to post-education programs, the Transitional Program for high school-aged youth with disabilities prepares and exposes students to job opportunities and provides hands-on experience in the competitive job market. The program serves as a starting point to help students formulate their identity as future members of the work force.

The program focuses on personal choice of post-education options and the acquisition of broad job skills through personal and professional accompaniment.

In addition to emphasis on post-educational pre-employment preparation programs, the Transitional Program exposes participants to additional post-education programs such as military service, National Service and ongoing education, all in accordance with participants’ inclinations and aspirations.
