A JTPA School to Work Transition Program for Disabled University Students.
Wolinsky, Gloria F.; And Others
A program developed at Hunter College of the City University of New York is designed to help handicapped students make a successful transition from school to work. The program provides students with unsubsidized short-term employment in the business sector and allows them to develop appropriate work habits and skills. Six program components are discussed: (1) assessment, (2) job preparation (environmental factors, work site accessibility, and interview skills); (3) job development and placement; (4) followup (post-placement services on individual and group basis); (5) counseling and resource linkage; and (6) life skills seminars (monthly meetings to address life skills issues such as money management, computers, fitness and stress management). Examples of two students who participated in the program are cited. (CL)
