School-to-Work Transition Program

This program is designed specifically to assist students who are in high school gain employment experiences prior to graduation. Students will participate in internships with local employers to gain first-hand work experience.

SES will help students who want to work become better prepared for life after high school and find meaningful careers.

Benefits to the individual include:

  • Hands-on experience in real jobs in an actual business environment
  • Payment for work done during the evaluation period
  • Assistance in learning job skills and tasks from an on-site job coach
