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.”
