Field Based Program
Kent State Transition Collaborative
The Kent State Transition Collaborative (KSTC) is a partnership between local public schools, agencies, and the Transition Center. It blends practical job training for young adults with disabilities and with "hands-on" experience for Kent State University students. The KSTC helps high school students develop transition plans and enhance their future employment opportunities. Currently the collaborative provides field-based experience in the following areas:
- Career Exploration, a two day option, which helps students to identify their interests and allows them to try out a number of job tasks.
- Job Training, a four day option, which helps students learn appropriate job behavior and meet employer expectations in a paid job.
