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.

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.

“I was applying to jobs and feeling discouraged. Through Transitions to Work I gained confidence and transferable retail skills. The instructors were supportive and helped me realize my strengths.” – Charles, Transitions to Work graduate
“When first hired Isaac, who is a graduate of Transitions to Work, it seemed that I was doing the right thing for Isaac and the program. But as I and Prime Motors came to know Isaac, watching his attitude toward work, his tremendous contributions to the company, I came to understand that I wasn’t just doing the right thing, but also the smart thing for our business, finding and hiring great talent. Since then, we hired three more Transitions grads at Prime Motor.” – David Rosenberg, CEO of Prime Motor Group
