Work-Based Learning / Workplace Readiness
Department of Vocational Rehabilitation partners with ANEW to offer a 40-hour work-based learning training for students with IEPs/504 plans. This experience connects students who are 14-21 years of age and currently on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 plans with a paid Work Learning Experience, where they learn transferable job skills such as time management, workplace readiness, self-advocacy and employee-employer interaction. They will also create projects to take home such as planter boxes, bird houses, benches, as well as a team project such as a doghouse or a tiny house.
The Youth Exploration Program (YEP) is a Pre-Employment Transition Service that allows students with IEP’s and/or 504 Plans to be introduced to the Building Trades/Apprenticeship Programs in Washington State.
