Visit from Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission

2022-10-05T12:30:11-04:00November 10, 2021|

We were pleased to host a visit by Yvonne Tylinski, M.S., C.R.C., a Vocational Counselor with the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, on Monday, November 8th.  Here, our Educational Coordinator, Kim Phillips, introduces Yvonne to a group of our juniors and seniors who were presented with information about the pre-ETS (Employment Transition Services) program which is offered to young adults as they prepare for adulthood.  MRC works with many community providers to offer transition services for students designed to provide them with the skills needed to be successful with employment or further education after high school.  The broad range of services the agency offers for both students and adults, in partnership with schools, families, and other state agencies, focuses on the importance of self-advocacy and helping people live more independently.

In 2021, we have ten students graduating — a true testament to their hard work and perseverance, especially during this challenging year.
