CAREER READINESS FOR STUDENTS
Viability’s Pre-Employment Transition Service (Pre-ETS) programs are designed to support the transition from school into adult life. Career readiness services equip students living with a disability ages 14-22 with an introduction to work that informs their future vocational choices, develops positive work habits, and emphasizes workplace wellness.
Funded by the New York Department of Education, Pre-ETS provides vocational exploration, hard and soft skills, and competitive, integrated vocational experiences. Our Pre-ETS programs cover everything from workplace expectations and how to prepare for them, to getting the job and how to be successful.
