Students with disabilities participate in summer training programs

Career planning and on-the-job training will continue for Oklahoma students with disabilities when school ends, thanks to Transition School to Work. Students from across the state can sign up for innovative job training programs offered free of charge by Vocational Rehabilitation and Visual services.

Students in Summer Transition Employment Programs are matched with paid, part-time employment in a career area of their interest, Transition Coordinator Renee Sansom said. “Then our instructors and ... counselors boost their confidence and develop the personal skills like problem-solving and teamwork that employers value most.”

Students selected for Working on the Wichita Mountains camp are paid to work at the wildlife refuge where they camp out, while developing work skills and job experience, Sansom said.
