The Community Links Department sets up, maintains, and supervises the Community Based Vocational Training sites. At these sites, students work as volunteers to improve their work readiness skills. Each class participates at the sites at least on a bimonthly basis.
The Community Links Department plans and instructs Transition Classes. The classes take place twice a month preparing students for life after high school graduation. The classes include interest inventories and career skill assessment.
For students that display competitive work skills, the Community Links Department assists in looking, applying for a job with an end goal of retaining a job in the community. Quite often, we will use one of our community partner sites to set up a Community Based Assessment. It is used as a way of assessing the students’ ability to perform a particular job or to showcase his/her skills for a potential employer.
