JVS has extensive experience providing vocational evaluations and support for teens with a variety of disabilities in NJ schools, and recognizes the importance of transition services targeted to individuals' specific needs.  JVS runs two Career Camps, one for students with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities and one for students diagnosed with an ASD.  The objective of Career Camp is to help prepare students for work, training or education after high school. 

 

Career Camp 2012 will provide students the opportunity to engage in vocational activities designed to simulate job tasks and give hands-on experience developing a variety of different work skills.  Camp activities will focus on vocational exploration, appropriate work behaviors, and social skills development.  Classroom instruction will be interactive and include resume writing, completion of job applications, and practicing interview skills.  Campers will also take field trips to community employment sites to learn about a variety of jobs available in areas such as health care, culinary arts, animal care, and horticulture.
