Transitions to Work is an employer based program that focuses on creating new employment opportunities for young adults with a disability. The program provides hands-on training and classroom instruction to help prepare students for work. The Transitions staff assists participants in obtaining employment upon completion of the program. Transitions to Work serves individuals with a disability between the ages of 18 to 35 who have completed high school and are motivated to work.
The Transitions to Work Program is excited to announce an upcoming training session beginning in January 2015:
Transitions will offer a training program in retail and customer service at the CVS Caremark Regional Learning Center in Boston. Students will gain hands-on work experience and cash register training that is relevant to real jobs. If you or anyone you know might be interested, please contact Madeline Wenzel at Mwenzel@jvs-boston.org or 617-399-3241
This program is made possible through the collaboration of CJP, the Ruderman Family Foundation and JVS. This project is also funded in part by a grant through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. The grant program is administered by Commonwealth Corporation. Together with our employer partners, we’re working to help people with disabilities develop skills needed for employment and place them into jobs that provide earnings and a sense of purpose.
