Preparing students to learn, grow, thrive and achieve life-long success

WorkAbility I and WorkAbility I Middle School

The Solano County Office of Education WorkAbility I program promotes independent living and provides comprehensive pre-employment worksite training, employment, and follow up services for youth in special education who are making the transition from school to work. The program serves both middle school and high school students. The middle school project assists eighth grade students with the transition to high school and with linking school to future careers. They are provided self-determination, career exploration and self-advocacy training. The secondary program assists students with the actual transition from high school. The goal is to have students employed and/or be enrolled in a training program leading to a job in their chosen career field.

The WorkAbility project currently serves over 200 high school and post-secondary students, and 130 middle school students.
