Maine School Administrative District 35 has been partnering with Work Opportunities Unlimited since the organization first became available to schools in Maine! Our high school students are afforded authentic work experiences that increase the knowledge, experience and abilities to be active and successful participants in the world of work. WOU is a valued partner in transition planning, actively working to help us develop and continuously refine school-based programs aimed at developing job interests, job seeking and keeping skills that culminate in assisted employment during students’ final years in high school. WOU has added a dimension to transition planning that activates the process from theory into practice. The benefits to our students and staff are genuine and part of the fabric of transition planning.
