What is PASS Career Camp?
PASS is proud to partner with Vocational Rehabilitation to provide a unique and interactive career exploration experience. Career Camp provides Pre-Employment Transition Services to young adults with disabilities between the ages of 14 and 21. PASS Career Camp builds valuable skills through the disciplines of workplace readiness training, work-based learning experiences, job exploration counseling, self-advocacy training, and postsecondary education counseling. These topics of study create a deeper understanding of our current labor market and build foundations for a successful career path. At PASS Career Camp, we believe young adults can do anything they set their mind to and are willing to work for. So dream BIG!

Career Camp Training Topics
Workplace Readiness Training
PASS instructors collaborate with young adults to explore employability, social/interpersonal, and independent living skills to prepare for life after high school. Employers share what they are searching for in an employee.
Work-based Learning Experiences
PASS offers opportunities for informational interviews, job shadowing, and virtual industry tours to explore career paths and work conduct. PASS partners with businesses who are excited to mentor future young professionals and show what successful employment looks like on the job.
Job Exploration Counseling
What is your dream job? PASS instructors share labor market information to explore the level of training or education required to become employed. Career interests are explored, and your unique strengths and skills are matched to career opportunities. PASS Instructors work with you to lay the ground work for the ultimate goal: A fulfilling career!
PASS offers instruction in self-awareness, disability disclosure, accommodation requests, understanding rights and responsibilities, and self-determination to help prepare young adults for independence and life after high school.
Postsecondary Educational Counseling
PASS instructors, job coaches and benefits advisors, along with a guest presenter or two, counsel young adults on how to apply for postsecondary educational programs, transition programs, and file for financial aid and scholarship opportunities.
