DCTC’s mission is Education for Employment. The project will launch with a two-day symposium for DCTC faculty and staff, families of students on the autism spectrum and supervisory staff from partnering state corporations to help students successfully transition to the college environment and beyond to meaningful employment. Partnering with these corporations to provide a 6-month internship opportunity for students before they complete their academic program at DCTC will enhance students’ chances for long-term employment.
