Project Overview

The purpose of the TAMU Work-Based Learning Project is to create authentic work experiences for high school students with disabilities in Texas. Our team works with selected high schools to implement Work-Based Learning programs on campus or in their communities. Through funding, training, and technical assistance, the project helps schools teach pre-emloyability skills and provide meaningful work experiences leading to paid employment.

For questions, support, and application submissions, email Robin Miller.
