Students completing a Pursuit class

Are you in pursuit?

Gain workplace readiness and work-based learning experiences

Do you have a documented disability and want to pursue your post-secondary goals? In this chapter filled with many unknowns, the Pursuit Lab is on a mission to bring college access and workplace readiness. We are a pre-employment transition service for students transitioning out of high school or looking for jobs/careers. We want you to join us!

In partnership with Washington’s Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Pursuit’s Workplace Readiness course seeks to help students to discover strengths, to prepare for jobs, and reach educational goals.

Program requirements:

  • Must be 16 or older and motivated to pursue more education, a job, and/or discovering their dependable strengths. 16-21 year old students are offered this opportunity for free.*
  • Must be able to communicate in verbal/written English and can function independently without constant support on campus (unless it is ASL interpreter).
  • Have (had) a documented disability could qualify for this support class (IEP, 504, or documented through SSD here on campus)!
  • Must be able to access an online class and be capable of independent management between 1-3 hours  transportation and are committed to attending class meeting times, Monday through Thursday, for one to three hours for an online class
  • Willing to be a part of a fun and supportive community of peers building independence through job and college exploration and progress.

*Limited space available for 22+ with a class fee
