    • In-school Pre-vocational Training
    • Career Profiles
    • Work-readiness Skills Sessions
    • Community Access Training
    • Individual Job Development
    • Practice Job Interviews
    • Internships & Job Shadowing
    • Resume Building
    • Job Coaching
    • College & Career Field Trips
    • Post-secondary Preparation
    • Assist with the 688 Referral Process
    • Transition Services
    STRIVE staff work closely with each high school’s Special Education office to assist in developing appropriate transition plans, in accordance with Massachusetts Chapter 688 Transitional Planning Program. It is the goal of STRIVE that an appropriate adult rehabilitative service provider be in place prior to the student exiting school.
