Career & Community Connections (CCC) is a vocational transition program for persons with disabilities, ages 18-21.
Instruction provided at CCC to these LTHS graduates centers around independent living, vocational training, and community involvement. Training is individualized based on the young adult’s abilities, needs, and goals‒whether those goals are gainful employment, independence at home, or a comfortable transition to a day program for adults.
Students develop communication skills, as well as daily skills for living, such as cooking, laundry, grocery shopping, personal finance, and time management.
For students who aspire to be gainfully employed, a CCC Career Facilitator will work to place those students in suitable positions with a local employer. There they will develop vocational skills, improve their ability to communicate, and enjoy the socialization that a work setting provides. Though positions are not paid initially, many ultimately develop into paid positions or provide vital work experience and references necessary for securing paid employment.
