Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)
Aka "Pre-ETS," these services aim to:
- Provide services in the form of work experiences, introduction to career pathways and related support services to youth eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) services.
- Demonstrate effective intra-agency collaborations and local partnerships which improve the outcomes of youth who are eligible for VR services.
- Identify best practices, co-enrollment strategies with the Minnesota Youth Program (MYP) and success stories that can be shared across states and local workforce system providers and other youth-serving agencies across the country.
DEED's Office of Youth Development is partnering with DEED's Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VRS) on a pilot project to provide Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) to youth who are eligible for VRS. This collaboration is required under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title IV, Subtitle B, Section 422, and encouraged by the Department of Labor in Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 8-15.
