  • Assisting students in identifying their transition related needs and in planning for their transition,
  • Providing instructional opportunities to students so that they may acquire the skills necessary for adult life,
  • Providing opportunities for career awareness, career exploration, and the development of appropriate work behaviors and marketable job skills,
  • Facilitating linkages with adult services, vocational training and post-secondary education providers,

The ultimate goal is for students to participate in meaningful activities that will equip them with the requisite skills to live successful and rewarding lives.
