The League partners with the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) and local school systems to provide Pre-Employment Transition Services to students with disabilities while still in school.  Specific services available through The League include:

Career Assessment

An interactive process that assists students in identifying vocational interests, aptitudes, skills, and generates recommendations for training and career development.  Assessments can occur within the school, at our facility in East Baltimore, or within the community.

Work-Based Learning Experience

Individual paid internships arranged for each student based on their unique interests, skills, and needs.  The League partners with local employers who “host” students in time-limited training experiences, while League staff provide both on and off-site job coaching, training, and support.

Job Coaching

Job Coaches provide support to students working in afterschool, weekend, or summer jobs.  Tailored to meet each student’s specific needs, job coaching services may include a mixture of on and off-site training and counseling.
