K-12 Educators

The Virtual Job Coach can be used in a K-12 transition classroom or pull out group for learners who are transitioning to adulthood. This model is appropriate for students who need significant assistance completing the modules and extra instruction to reinforce key concepts, or for younger learners who may have less experience in the process of planning a career and finding and keeping a job.
