Career and Transition Program

Career and Transition Program (CAT)

DRCVI has recently launched a new and exciting activity - the Career and Transition or “CAT” project.  The CAT project was created to help students and young adults learn about their employment options and make their own career choices.  

The CAT project will provide professional assistance in two ways:

  • Provide in-depth one-on-one career training using the O*NET training platform
  • Present 6 monthly training forums on such topics as: Helping to Fill the Labor Gap, Your Rights as a Worker with a Disability, How to Advocate for Yourself, How to Handle your Finances, and What to Consider When Starting Your Own Business

CAT project staff will work along with representatives from the V.I. Department of Labor, Vocational Rehabilitation, Office of the Governor’s ADA Coordinator, Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), Economic Development Administration (EDA), VI University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (VIUCEDD), VI Department of Education, Island Therapy, Wheatley Training Center, and more individuals and organizations that support the goal of providing young people with career opportunities.

This project will be available for a limited time only, so please act now.
