What is WorkAbility?

WorkAbility I was initiated in 1981 as a pilot project to test the concept of work experience for youth with disabilities. Since then, California’s program has been designated one of the top ten in the country. The well-researched, key components designed to prepare students for the workforce include:

  • Career/Vocational Assessments
  • Career Counseling and Guidance
  • Youth Development and Leadership
  • Career Integration of Work Readiness Curriculum
  • Career/Transition Portfolio
  • Vocational/Career Tech Classes
  • Partnership Collaboration
  • Parent Participation

By linking employers and students through these services, the collaborative efforts “…will culminate in successful student transition to employment, lifelong learning, and quality adult life.”
