High School Transition Program
Understanding that students with disabilities may require additional career exploration and employment preparation, Hudson Community Enterprises provides students with the skills, information and tools needed for their introduction to the work environment.
Through HCE’s High School Transition Program, we work closely with students to emphasize appropriate behavior and work habits, basic work skills, functional workplace literacy and job retention abilities. The students partake in vocational exploration experiences hosted by community businesses. Through this training, our main goal is the development of transferrable skills for our students.
Transferable skills are the skills gathered through life experiences that can be used in the workplace, and are vitally important to young people seeking their first jobs. Examples of transferrable skills the student will develop through our program include:
We strive to help our students develop a positive attitude toward employment while instilling a familiarity with basic workplace expectations, and we urge you to contact us for more information on how our program helps to create successful pathways to employment.
