Transition to Adult Life in the Community

In collaboration with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, The Enrichment Center is proud to teach Transition to Adult Life in the Community. This class teaches job readiness and employability skills, communication skills, interpersonal and social skills; and, it is geared to help students transition into adult life in the community by providing resources to meet the individual's interests, including a referral to Vocational Rehabilitation.

Currently this program is operating in the following schools: Carter High School, Glenn High School, Mt. Tabor High School and North Forsyth High School.

Individualized goals are set in the beginning, and assistance to reach these goals is provided through carefully selected curriculums. Visits into the community are strategically planned to further enhance the topics being taught. At the conclusion of the course, students will receive a referral to Vocational Rehabilitation for assistance in job placement. Individuals will also receive resources to help them navigate their community.

  • Writing Resumes

  • Building Self Confidence
  • Communication Skills
  • Goal Setting

Funding for this project is provided by non-recurring funds from the 2017-2018 North Carolina State Budget.
