The Transition Program

Community employment initiative for high school special education students.

NorthPointe Resources is Lake County’s leader in providing high school special-ed students with community employment preparation, training, and support.

Through this program, seniors with special needs can start to prepare for employment in the community while still in high school. This program gives the students a much-needed head start identifying the type of work they would like to pursue after they graduate.

Should students find desirable employment while still in school, they can start working before they graduate (class schedule permitting).

Transition Program
Some of the many services they can access include career exploration, interest assessment, interviewing skills, job searching (online and offline), job training, job coaching, and on-the-job support.

High School Transition Program
All these services have been designed to help the student to secure and retain competitive placement in the community.
