Work-Based Learning

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 16-21 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.  

Students can join a 40-hour work-based learning during the school year or during one of ANEW’s summer boot camps. They will have two components.  One includes soft skills,  and two that incorporates hands-on projects and a fun learning experience that will keep students engaged.
