Transition Services

The Youth in Transition Program at Headwaters partners with school staff, human services case managers, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to assist youth in transition to develop work and life skills, with the ultimate goal of improving post school outcomes.

There is specific focus on skill development that will improve a student's ability to obtain and maintain a job in the community, or to pursue post secondary education goals. This includes skill development in the areas of employability and soft skills, self-advocacy and decision making, and life skills.

Services also include in-depth assessment and discovery to determine possible career paths based on the students’ strengths and preferences. This may include job shadowing and work experiences, and internships to support students in exploring their career interests.

Through Headwaters' Transition Services, students will also participate in regular community experiences to help identify community settings for community-based activities that align with the students' interests.

In addition, Headwaters is a partner in the Jump!Start Program, along with Nicolet College and local school districts, to develop and provide transitional post-secondary education opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities. These opportunities include classes at Nicolet College or at other community locations.
