Greetings and Welcome!


In partnership with Vocation Rehabilitation (VR) we are happy to welcome you to CHIPS Pre-ETS (Pre-employment Transition Services)!  


CHIPS Pre-ETS is a job, career and life skills development program, offered FREE for students ages 14-22 with disabilities.  The program offers the following four services:


  • Job exploration counseling

We look forward talking with you about the benefits of CHIPS Pre-ETS.  We are dedicated to helping  students move full-STEAM ahead with both the hard skills and soft skills they need, to go from school to work more successfully.
