Do you want to empower and motivate your students with disabilities to take ownership of their learning experiences with job skills? Transition your existing transition program into an educational experience that emphasizes on self determination,career-specific academics, and authentic workplace experiences. Learn how to develop and promote motivational opportunities such as Job Olympics, while giving students the vocational and community relations experience that showcases student talent and translates into post graduation employment.. Learn ways to empower your students to become self reliant, responsible, contributing citizens by maximizing employment potential, independence, and integration into the community.

Tie the year together by ending with an exciting, highly motivating event called Job Olympics. Job Olympics is an event that showcases students aptitude, knowledge, interest and skills in key vocational areas necessary for employment. Students compete against each other and show prospective employers that students with disabilities can be independent and dedicated to employment. Jobs range from advance to simple, to include every level of cognitive and physical abilities. Students are judged by business owners, managers, and supervisors from the community. The satisfaction from the event is watching students work hard to show the judges how they can be successful employees and seeing them receive their medals at the closing ceremony.

The bottom line….too many students graduate to their living room couch, where their worlds become lonely and limited. Transition programs can help students find their way and be successful in life after high school. Let me introduce you to students that have participated in the Branson Transition Program and are successful employees today.
