The Arc of the District of Columbia is pleased to partner with the District of Columbia Public Schools Transition Program where we assist school administrators and teachers to support students to:

  • increase their knowledge and use of community resources
  • practice lessons learned in the classroom within their community
  • enhance their self-determination skills
  • consider career paths and future employment opportunities
  • organize their experiences and discoveries in to student portfolios

In addition to coordinating community-based instructional opportunities, The Arc of the District of Columbia also assists students to obtain volunteer and paid employment positions and delivers professional development workshops to schools personnel. The Arc of the District of Columbia is currently working with students and teachers at:

  • Anacostia High School
