Emerging young adults with learning differences face unique challenges regarding employment. However, they can still achieve their employment goals with proper support and guidance. An internship can significantly benefit emerging young adults with learning differences. These opportunities provide hands-on experience, allowing young adults to gain exposure to the working world and develop valuable skills.
Each student in the program is assigned a placement tailored to their needs. These internships provide authentic hands-on workplace experience with performance evaluations and clear, direct feedback, allowing for meaningful and specific growth in developing soft and transferable skills. They can also serve as a gateway to future employment opportunities and help our students achieve their career goals. Furthermore, in daily academic coursework, students focus on developing and strengthening professional written and verbal expression skills, problem-solving, teamwork, communication skills, and career exploration through our Professional Studies course.
