Transition Pathway Services


Transition Pathway Services (TPS) is a partnership between BCIL and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) designed to enhance competitive integrated employment and post-secondary enrollment outcomes for high school students living with significant disabilities. TPS utilizes a transition service model that coordinates vocational rehabilitation services, high school career planning, independent living peer model supports, and business engagement strategies throughout the last two years of the student’s high school experience.

The TPS Project is a pilot program for students enrolled in Boston’s MRC Roxbury area schools. To be eligible for this service, participants must be:

 Enrolled in Hyde Park, Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan and South End High Schools

 Ages 16-22

 Eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation services through MRC

 Able and willing to commit to completing eight of the ten service components

Work based learning experiences will be customized around a student’s abilities, skills, interests and local opportunities using our ten TPS wrap around service components which include:    Family Support, Peer Mentoring, 2 Work Based Learning Experiences, Vocational Counseling, Workplace Readiness Training, Benefits Counseling, Assistive Technology Assistance, Transportation Coordination/Training, Vocational Assessment Transition Planning, and Customized job placement.
