Postsecondary Education Rehabilitation Transition (PERT) Program, PERT Virtual Field Trip, Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center (WWRC)
The PERT Program is a highly effective school-to-work transition initiative supported by the Virginia Department of Education and administered through the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) at Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center (WWRC). PERT Program services are provided on the WWRC Campus where students reside in a dormitory.
The PERT Program assists students in their transition from high school to post secondary options by helping them answer these questions:
- What's out there for me?
- What are my talents?
- What are my interests?
- What types of jobs might I enjoy doing?
- What skills do I need to become employed?
- What do I need to learn to live on my own?
