Community-Based Vocational Instructional Program is a Community based program that provides local students with disabilities the opportunity to gain work experience and skills through volunteering in various community volunteer sites. The students are supported by our team of Job Coaches while volunteering. There are both full-day and half-day options available to best meet the needs of the students.
What is a PWE? Paid Work Experiences are for students that are eligible or potentially eligible for services with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). These experiences are very similar to internships and are conducted for a total of 40 hours. The students are paid an hourly stipend for working their 40 hours by TEC. The student will be supervised 100% of the time during the 40 hours of work experience by a TEC Job Coach. TEC is an OVR provider for Paid Work Experiences.
