What is the Ticket to Work Program?
Inroads to Transition supports individuals between the ages of 16-21 who are still enrolled in their secondary school.

Students are exposed to various employment settings through job shadowing internships and volunteer experiences. Once an employment goal is developed, experienced job developers look for a good employment match. Our job coaches then support the student through the hiring and training process. If needed, Inroads staff will support the student long term at the job site to make sure there is a successful transition to the competitive workforce.
