Through continued partnership with the Missouri Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), this summer the Life & Work Connections program will offer free pre-employment transition services to public high school students age 16 and up. The program called “Work It: Teens in Transition” combines classroom learning with community outings, providing participants with an early start at job preparation and exploration.
Work It is a fun, interactive class to help teens get ready for the working world. Participants will:
- Investigate jobs and career paths.
- Discover options after high school.
- Experience career roles in the community.
- Expand skills for the future.
- Practice talking about their interests, rights and needs.
The eight-week session starts on June 12, 2017 and runs on Mondays and Thursdays from 12:30-2 p.m. through August 4. Students must be 16 or older by August 4, 2017 and enrolled in a public high school to participate. Lunch is not provided during the sessions.
