The Transition Pathways Services (TPS) Work-Based Learning Model Demonstration

The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) was awarded a $5 million dollar grant to assist VR-eligible students with disabilities to participate in individually tailored work-based learning activities that promote employment and/or postsecondary educational attainment upon graduation from high school.

This grant seeks to improve the lives of Massachusetts residents and to increase economic and educational opportunities for youth with disabilities who are students in Massachusetts high schools.

Drs. Susan Foley, Sheila Fesko, Myra Rosen-Reynoso, Heike Boeltzig-Brown, and other members of the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) will partner with MRC to provide evaluation and technical assistance services, and to disseminate findings nationally.
