Vocational Rehabilitation Service (VRS) places substantial emphasis on transition from school to work. Our transition teams assist junior and senior high school students with disabilities in preparing for employment and community living. VRS counselors work with students, parents, special education teachers, coordinators, and other school personnel throughout the state to provide assistance to students in developing career goals and obtaining on-the-job training opportunities. Each year, VRS assists 17,330 adolescents and students with disabilities. Every high school in Alabama has a VRS counselor assigned to provide services to students with disabilities.
VRS also funds and monitors a network of local community transition teams. These teams are designed to enhance communication among school personnel, vocational rehabilitation staff, community businesses and organizations to develop job training and placement opportunities for students with disabilities.
