The Community Transition Program (CTP) prepares special education youth ages 18-21 for life by integrating community resources into their extended high school education. Students learn academic subjects as they relate to "real world" applications, such as practicing consumer skills, home-economics skills, and learning to use public transportation. A key component of the program is providing work-based learning experiences to our students. The primary goal of work-based learning is to have students participate in internships that are supervised by workplace mentors as well as CTP staff.
