The Wings of Success Transition Program
The Wings of Success Program class starts each day with personal goals they have set for themselves the day before. As they work throughout the day they are able to self-assess their progress. Staff is there to provide support as needed.
The curriculum used in this program is published by the James Stanfield Company and is designed to assist in the transition from school to career and adulthood. Emphasis is put on personal, career and life management. The Transition instructor assists each client in identifying their strengths and weaknesses to achieve maximum independence in the workforce. This group is geared toward obtaining gainful employment in the community while continuing their personal growth through the classroom.
Graduation and becoming an independent member of the community is the ultimate goal for each individual in this group. Some of our clients are currently employed/volunteering in the community.
