Urban Skills Center Holds Annual Transition Information Night

November 5th, 2009 by admin

We had a successful Transition Information Night and Open House on October 6th. Over 50 parents and students attended this event! Presenters from several adult agencies and the community college district shared information about services available to students once they finish their school program. Agencies included: The Arc of San Diego, CREEL, Employment & Community Options, Department of Rehabilitation, and the San Diego Community College District. Partnerships With Industry and Toward Maximum Independence were unable to attend but provided written material.

The students are just beginning to tour these different agencies. While we specifically encourage all our Junior and Senior students and their families to attend, anyone is welcome to participate. These tours give students and families an opportunity to observe and learn about the options available upon graduation. Students prepare questions ahead of time to make sure they obtain the information they need. We have already toured Partnerships With Industry (PWI) on October 13th and are scheduled to tour Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) on November 10th and The Arc of San Diego on January 12th.
