Adult Transition Program

Mission Statement
The Adult Transition Program serves students with individualized education plans ages 18-22 with a focus on vocational education, functional academics, and independent living skills. The program's mission is to provide adult students with the support they need to be successful, contributing members of society by providing equitable access to work opportunities and teaching general life skills.  
Vocational Education & WorkAbility
The Adult Transition Program provides on- and off-site instruction in employment skills, as well as job placement and job coaching. On campus, students practice filling out applications, create resumes, and participate in mock interviews. We partner with the Redondo Union High School WorkAbility Program to place students at various work sites within the local community including various retail stores, restaurants, and gardens. Students work up to 3 hours per week for which they are paid. Additionally, students work up to 8 hours per week at a variety of RBUSD school sites learning skills that include, but are not limited to: stocking, delivering, garden maintenance, food preparation, and cleaning. 
Functional Academics
While on campus, time is designated for students to work on financial readiness skills such as: money identification, calculating change, budgeting expenses, and banking skills. Students also practice traditional and digital literacy skills including: composing emails, sending texts, using navigation applications, and identifying community safety signs. 
Independent Living Skills
The program routinely targets skills necessary for students to live as independently as possible. The general focus of instruction is on cleaning skills and maintaining personal hygiene. Examples of cleaning skills include how to wash dishes, doing laundry, and making a bed. Examples of personal hygiene skills include handwashing, caring for work attire, and bodily cleanliness.
Community-Based Instruction
Trips into the community as a whole or small group are routinely planned to engage students in various parts of community life. The primary objective of these trips is to apply the skills mentioned above in real world context(s). Common destinations include the grocery store, the mall, retail stores, and social events. Associated skills include learning to ride the bus, navigate the community via crossing streets safely, following the visual cues of safety signs, and stranger awareness.
