The Arc Lexington Partners with WWAARC to Expand its Transitions Program

CAPITAL REGION —The Arc Lexington is partnering with Warren-Washington-Albany ARC (WWAARC) to expand its Transitions program into the Capital Region. WWAARC will offer employment supports to Transitions students at businesses in the Capital District and on the Albany campus. Such support includes internships, career counseling, on-the-job coaching services, job training, and more. 

Based in Mayfield, NY, the Transitions program focuses on building academic and life skills and general independence for teens and young adults with autism and other learning differences. Through partnerships with local colleges, internships, and supported living opportunities, Transitions helps young people on the autism spectrum or with learning differences make successful transitions from adolescence to young adulthood. 

“We are very pleased to be able to form this partnership with WWAARC,” said Shaloni Winston, Founder of Transitions and CEO of The Arc Lexington. “This partnership will allow us to bring truly innovative approaches to address the critical need that exists among so many individuals and families that currently fear how they will face the challenges of life after high school.”
