For some young adults of the Glenholme Transition Program, part-time and full-time work is a primary responsibility. Through real-life work situations, they gain valuable skills for autonomy and self-reliance as they become part of the economic fabric of their community. The young men and women of Glenholme Transition practice applying and interviewing for employment, maintaining positive work relationships and meeting the requirements of their positions. Job coaching is part of the program, providing critical skills for functioning and succeeding in the work place and building confidence in navigating social situations.
The objective of the program is for participants to generalize social, coping, and life skills to their work settings through coaching and guided practice.
