CVCC Transition Program
The CVCC Transition Program (CTP) presents employment and independent living skills to adults with
disabilities. The program is an innovative collaboration between Central Virginia Community College,
Region 2000 school divisions, local businesses and government. Students receive over 400 hours of
instruction in employment skills in a variety of fields, mentoring to assist in transition to college
life, and an opportunity to participate in assessments and internships in local businesses. Classes
are taught by college professors and secondary school personnel, and many students receive both high
school and college credit through the program.
CTP not only empowers young adults with disabilities, it trains new workers to take
their places in the community. Many of this year's students will already be employed upon completion.
This successful program received the 2007 Department of Rehabilitative Services Commissioner's Award
and has inspired other programs around the state.
Enrollment is generally through partnering school divisions, but a limited number of individuals enter
through CVCC's Workforce Solutions and Community Education Office. For more information, please contact
