Transitions to Work
Do you need help finding a job and succeeding at work? JVS’s Transitions to Work program can help you launch your career through skills training, employer-based internships, job placement services, and ongoing support. Classes are held at worksites throughout Greater Boston, which are all accessible by public transportation, and are taught by JVS instructors. This extensive training and internship program enables adults with disabilities to develop the skills needed for jobs that provide earnings and a sense of purpose.
Transitions to Work offers seven training sessions annually at employer training partner sites. These sites include CVS, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Whole Foods, and NewBridge On the Charles.
