Job Coach Services (Career and Transition Services)
Job coaches help students who can be independent on a job but need individualized, short-term, on-the-job support and training to succeed.
Job coach services support students' success as independent workers. Job coaches assist students with disabilities who can work on their own but need short-term support to succeed in a community work experience. They fade their support once the student works without the coach's help.
A student can access job coach services through their employment and transition representative (ETR) at their high school.
