Experiences transitioning from the use of Section 14(c) certificates

Raising expectations creates opportunites

In my experience of working with transition age youth and young adults, because of the limits the WIOA regulations have implemented to mitigate sheltered work being a primary experience, educators, indivividuals and families are realizing what is possible. It is important to provide wrap around supports if a person is not able to work 30-40 hours per week, this is often why individuals and families want these segregated settings because they need the continued support of the "6 hour day" . In our school to work project we have identified what people need to have community based jobs and wrap around supports. It is working, one person at a time
