Program Description
The Job Training Program is a one year training program which requires a special recommendation from the student's school counselor.

The Job Training Program assists students in understanding their abilities, provides work opportunities that will help a student work to their individual potential, and helps students match their goals with realistic training programs, employment opportunities, and independent living options.
Students learn basic work skills such as following written or sample directions, staying on task, working with good speed and quality in order to meet deadlines, being on time and staying on schedule; and soft skills such as appropriate communication with co-workers, supervisors and employees from other departments.

Program Fees
There are no tool kit or student fees associated with this program.
