Transition Services

Target Community & Educational Services, Inc. (Target) partners to provide a Post-Secondary Transition Program with Carroll County Public Schools. The goal of this program is to offer learning opportunities to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to help them gain the skills necessary to make a smooth transition into the work force, to be active and productive participants in the community, and to live as independent a life as possible.

The Transition Connections Program (TCP), one of the five post-secondary programs through Carroll County Public Schools, was developed in conjunction with Carroll County Public Schools, Carroll Community College, Target Community & Educational Services, Inc. and The Arc of Carroll County. This program is for students who have earned a high school certificate, are remaining in the school system until age 21, are seeking competitive employment, and who wish to become independent, contributing members of the community.

Classroom instruction for the TCP takes place at Carroll Community College and on the Carroll Springs school campus. Classes include personal fitness, computer literacy, communication and social skills, self-determination, residential living skills, academic support and career management. Volunteer and paid positions in the community are supported by classroom instructional aides who also serve as job coaches. In addition, the program works with the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) to insure a smooth transition from school to work.
