Student Transition & Enrichment Program

 

Two STEP students enjoying a break in between classesThe only program of its kind in Southern California, Junior Blind’s Student Transition & Enrichment Program (STEP) is designed to help teens and young adults identify areas of career interest and successfully transition to college or the workforce. In addition to learning skills for independent living, students develop work-readiness skills through individualized instruction, group seminars and internships opportunities that are matched to their interests, abilities and goals.

Who We Serve

The Student Transition & Enrichment Program serves young adults, ages 16-22, who are blind or visually impaired and seeking advancement in their careers or education.
