DORS/Pre-ETS Youth Employment Program
TransCen currently has been working with the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) since 2011. As of 2020, TCI receives referrals from DORs Counselors for students interested in participating in a Work-Based Learning Experience (WBLE). The students range in age from (14-21).
Our program operates throughout the entire calendar year for eligible youth residing in Montgomery, Harford, and Cecil counties. The opportunity affords eligible youth to gain valuable work experience while exploring career interests through a six-week paid internship.
TransCen staff assist the youth with job search, placement, short-term job coaching services, outreach to employers, as well as, utilizing customized employment techniques to target employers based on each youth’s interests, skills, and abilities. Each youth will receive mid-point and final evaluations during the course of their work experience. Through the work, experience students will acquire new skills, which will serve valuable as they look forward to pursuing permanent employment.
