Transitions Apprenticeships

Transitions offers a fully inclusive two- to four-year college and career support experience to students with learning differences. The program includes enrollment in college courses, participation in career internships, leadership opportunities, and classes in social integration, self-management, career exploration, independent living and self-advocacy. The result is skill development, maturity and the confidence to live life as an independent adult.

All Apprentices will enroll in a 1-credit college class in career exploration and success each semester that will help them determine whether they are on a college or career path. Students can elect to enroll at Transitions while simultaneously attending Fulton-Montgomery Community College (FMCC), where they don’t just study – they thrive.

Transitions has partnered with FMCC, part of the State University of New York system, to ensure that the academic life of our Apprentices is robust and that they are properly supported every step of the way. Through FMCC, students can complete a certificate program, a two- or four-year degree program, or an individually designed program in majors such as Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education, Engineering and Fine Arts. FMCC offers an additional Individual Studies certificate or degree program called Collaborative Career Learning (COCAL). This program combines classroom learning, professional mentorship and hands-on workplace experience tailored to each student’s specific career goals.

TRANSITIONS WILL:

  • Assess Apprentices’ academic skills and interests
  • Help Apprentices develop personalized academic success plans
  • Assist with the application process and liaise with the college on the Apprentices’ behalf
  • Provide group and individual study halls
  • Support Apprentices in selecting and registering for classes, following course syllabi, prioritizing assignments and managing time effectively
