Mission: The mission of WAI is to promote the involvement of key stakeholders including students, families, educators, employers and other agencies in planning and implementing an array of services that will culminate in successful student transition to employment, lifelong learning and quality of life.
WorkAbility I program services are available to all high school students in Lake County who have a current IEP. Students from all districts, including Konocti, Kelseyville, Lakeport, Middletown, Lake County Office of Education and Upper Lake are participating in the program. Services are all based on the Array of Service guidelines provided by the California Department of Education (CDE) and include work based, school based and community based activities. WorkAbility provides curriculum, pre-employment skills training and direct worksite training for the students in the program. Currently, the Lake County WorkAbility program serves 326 high school students.
Qualifying Criteria: Students in WorkAbility must have a current IEP and be in high school level. Lake County is funded to serve 325 students and must place 81 of those students in paid work.
