School and Vocational Training (SVT)
 
The School and Vocational Training (SVT)  provides students with the fundamental skills necessary for entry-level employment. The year-round program offers intensive training to develop students’ experience and confidence for an inclusive work setting. Students learn through community-based employment opportunities and classroom-based academic activities. In addition to the fundamental skills necessary for employment, students are provided with life skills to live at the highest degree of Independence possible.

While on the job, students are closely supervised at all times by an on-site vocational instructor, who provides students with instruction and support. As students become more independent at work, coaching gradually fades away. Students who meet the eligibility requirements are given the opportunity to participate in internships within their vocational interest area.

  • Supervised vocational exploration in small groups (1:5 or 1:6)
  • Small, structured environment
  • Social skills
