Genesis Transition to Work

Jefferson & New Berlin

Currently, in mainstream special education programs, young adults are graduating from high school with limited options for education and employment. There are also deficits in the labor market, especially in skilled labor.

St. Coletta of Wisconsin has had a proven track record in bringing together the skills of young adults with special needs and the demands of area businesses.

With more than a century of history, St. Coletta has educated and trained people with disabilities to be successful both in their work and personal lives. Many of these people are living full lives of dignity, choice and independence, as contributing members of their communities.

Genesis is designed to serve participants who are either currently attending school or have just completed or graduated from school.
