Picture of students

Deciding where you want to go or what you want to do after high school can be confusing. Is working after graduation the right decision or should you go onto college or some other employment training?

VR helps students and youths with disabilities prepare for their future. We will work with you, your teachers, your parents, or other family members to plan for the next phase of your life. We want to help you achieve your employment goals and fulfill your dreams.

Let’s help you get started with VR
