Since the beginning of October, the transition students have been working at Carlo’s Pizza, Benefit Physical Therapy, Central Jersey Realtor, Northern Nurseries, Yestercades, Homewood Suites by Hilton, and volunteering at Genesis Health Care Nursing Home and the Manville Library. The newest worksite placement is WaWa Market located in Bridgewater. 

A job coach accompanies the student to each job site. The job coach encourages the student to work on skills related to performing specific job tasks, and also helps with interpersonal skills necessary in the workplace.

The SLE experiences are designed to give students structured, supervised activities that will assist them to clarify career goals, explore career possibilities, develop employable skills, or make the transition between school and employment or further education and training.
