WorkAbility Program


The Mission of the WorkAbility Program is to promote the involvement of key stakeholders including students, families, educators, employers, and other agencies in planning and implementing an array of services that will culminate in successful student transition to employment, lifelong learning and quality of life.

WorkAbility is a training program for special education students ages 16-22. It is designed to promote career awareness and exploration while students complete their secondary education program. WorkAbility provides students with opportunities for job shadowing, paid and non-paid work experience, and ongoing support and guidance from vocational personnel. This program also helps students make the transition from school to work, post-secondary education, or training. WorkAbility is administered by the California Department of Education, Special Education Department.
