Our students are transitioning to their next steps while navigating the challenges the pandemic has created for post-graduation life. Although their emotional disabilities can put them at a disadvantage when entering the competitive workforce, we know with support they can accomplish great things.
We are witnessing the setbacks the pandemic is creating for this generation of emerging adults. Each year, the Career Connections Program develops transition plans for all students 14 years old and up. The program provides vocational training opportunities, financial assistance with college application fees, professional attire for interviews, and assists students to earning their high school diplomas. We are eager to return to pre-pandemic services, such as providing local college tours and offering work-study programs.
With more obstacles than ever during these last two years, we are mobilizing to raise $1,000 to fund our Career Connections Program to help our current seniors as they prepare for graduation, and to be ready to support our students in the new school year. We are truly grateful for your support!
“Career Connections helps us try to get jobs, apply for college, and see what our goals are for when we graduate. They help us get ready for the real world.” -Student, The Foundation Schools
