The Riverside County Office of Education is offering an on-the-job training program for more than 100 young people with federal stimulus money available to reimburse employers who participate to cover training costs.
The Transition Partnership Program (TPP) offered by RCOE is a partnership with the Department of Rehabilitation and finds jobs for young people who recently completed high school and who have learning disabilities or physical disabilities.
Some of the young job hunters have no work experience.
Others have completed a vocational training program and an internship in a field such as warehousing, child care, or retail.
Employers who continue to employ one of the participants for several months may also qual ify for the state’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit.
Information on the on-the-job trainings is available from Lynn Smith at the Riverside County Office of Education, (951) 826- 6763.
