Description

This poster reviews a pilot program that is a partnership between Starbridge, the Rochester City School District and the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities. In 2019 this program, the Employment Discovery Network, hosted weekly sessions at RCSD with 18-21 year old students who were transitioning from school to employment. Each session focused on cultivating conversations around future planning, increasing employment readiness skills and knowledge, and increasing expectations for employment.
