School to Work Transition
The School to Work Transition program helps students train for a job, continue their education, and/or work after leaving high school. We are here to help you in your transition from high school to the working world, whether it's to find a job directly after high school, or continue your secondary education to pursue your career goal. We help students who want to work become better prepared for life after high school and find meaningful careers.
VR is confidential so you can work towards your dream job with your transition counselor and no one needs to know. Your counselor will help you develop the tools to sell your strong points to employers. We want you to succeed!
