The Arc Student Services at Wolf Park

Student Support

The Arc of Wabash County is committed to providing a smooth transition from high school to employment or post-secondary training. Our programs and services are designed to help individuals with disabilities access meaningful career planning and achieve their goals. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to succeed, and we work hard to make that happen.

Pre Employment Transitions Services (PreEts)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and requires Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies to set aside federal funds for the provision of Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) to "students with disabilities who are eligible or potentially eligible for VR services." This is a great opportunity to ensure students have access to meaningful career planning in order to help with the seamless movement from high school to employment or post-secondary training.
