Audra Owens graduated from Morehead State University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a focus in Industrial Organizational Psychology and work place safety. She is currently taking night classes at the University of Louisville to become an American Sign Language Interpreter. She began working for Options Unlimited at the end of 2013. She piloted the now up and running Transition from School to Work Program. Audra remains at her "home school" improving the program with each graduation class.
Transition from School to Work Program- Is a program within three high schools located in the Bullitt County school district. The program focuses on teaching transitional skills to juniors and seniors with disabilities, insuring that they smoothly transition from school to the working/college world. These skills include soft skills, advocating for themselves, resume writing, interview tips and tricks, online application processes, and how to ask for accommodations at school and work. During the program, students get to go out into the community and gain actual work skills by working in their own communities. They get to job shadow and take tours of places to which they are interested. They also get to practice their interview skills by taking part in mock interviews ran by community partners. The first year was a success and now all three Bullitt County high schools are being served by their own job coaches.
Our job coaches guide students through site based instruction. So that when the student graduates they may obtain employment.
