Jon Dohner is proud of how his son, Derek, successfully transitioned to the workforce – thanks to the robust transition skills programming offered by Sierra Schools. “Sierra really helped prepare Derek for his adult life. They helped build his confidence, and his ability to be more comfortable around people,” he says.
Derek participated in the transition skills program at a Sierra Schools program in California. The former student shares the skills he learned to prepare him for life after school: “At Sierra, I learned how to use a schedule, and follow through and get stuff done.”
His father notes, “The transition from Sierra to his adult programs and activities was as smooth as we could have hoped for.”
Sierra Schools are committed to preparing youth to become responsible adults who participate in their communities and lead fulfilling lives. Parents can have peace of mind knowing their child is set up to succeed.
