On The Job Training
After-School & Weekend Jobs for High School Teens
4-6 Week Paid Internships for Teens
Life Transition Skills, Inc., in conjunction with Vocational Rehabilitation Services, provides On the Job Training (OJT) for students ages 14-22 who are eligible for special education services through either a 504 Plan or an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
With support from Voc Rehab and LTS, teens are placed on a job site and will work a maximum of 20 hours per week for up to 6 weeks. The teen is paid an hourly wage by LTS; their paychecks will come directly from our organization. The employer is not responsible for paying the teen.
