Program Description

The Job Training Program is a one year training program which requires a special recommendation from the student's school counselor.

The Job Training Program assists students in understanding their abilities, provides work opportunities that will help a student work to their individual potential, and helps students match their goals with realistic training programs, employment opportunities, and independent living options.

We strive to provide a work setting that will allow a student to improve their:

  • Behaviors as they relate to the world of work
Students will take an objective look at careers and what skills are needed to enter these fields using:
  • LCJVS training program
