Vocational Program

The goal of our Vocational Program is to build positive work behaviors and provide expert training for every student. From the age of 15 years, students start working with the Vocational Services Department, which is staffed by two Special Education teachers and three job coaches.

Each student starts in our Work Adjustment program within the Gengras Center building followed by a job on the campus of USJ. As students gain necessary work skills they eventually participate in either our Campus Work Team or on one of our Community Work Teams.

Students have begun working at their work sites this semester. View the dress code requirements at work placements. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Vocational Services Department at (860)231-5383. You may also email us at cwilson@usj.edu or kmwalsh@usj.edu.
