Transition Services enables young New Zealanders in their last year of school to explore new environments with the guidance and support of a CCS Disability Action staff member.
How you can help
By offering non-paid work experience, or an after school job, you can help a young person discover where their interests lie and what goals they want to achieve. Trying out new situations and roles helps students learn skills, challenge themselves and have a totally new experience.
What this means for you
If you offer non-paid work experience or a part time job to someone using our Transition Services, CCS Disability Action will support both you and the student. This is your chance to meet young motivated people who could be part of your future workforce.
Firstly, we will arrange a meeting for you and the student to discuss their goals and what you can offer them. Then we will all work together to find an arrangement that will suit both you and the student. If the young person requires support on the job, we can organise this. CCS Disability Action will maintain regular contact with you, the young person, their family and whanau and their school.
