A transitional program in partnership with Washington County School Districts, this program helps high-school seniors successfully move from school into the workforce. Education, testing and temporary work experiences are part of the program.
Help students transition from the high school environment into the world of work
Students are also provided with hands-on work opportunities at TTI Industries – the subcontract manufacturing division of the Threshold
Students receive supervised guidance from an on-site counselor
Students are exposed to new job skills relating to co-workers and supervisors
Students also have classroom time during the day and learn needed skills such as completion of a job application, developing a resume, group discussions on problem-solving skills in the workplace, interviewing and work expectations
Our newest service is an “On-site temporary work experience program,” where students are actually working in a community-based job at our partnering companies: West Bend Mutual Insurance Company and the Washington County Highway Department. This allows students to experience a full-fledged integration into the workforce which better prepares them for possible future jobs in the community.
