Arkansas Rehabilitation Services invites high school juniors with disabilities to apply for the Transition Employment Project (TEP) by Friday, March 15, 2024.

The one-week comprehensive pre-employment transition service will take place from June 9-15 at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts (ASMSA), located at 200 Whittington Ave. in Hot Springs National Park.

The Transition Employment Project prepares high school students with disabilities for future employment.

TEP was developed by the Arkansas Transition Project and the Arkansas Career Development Center and is designed to help students with disabilities who have completed the 11th grade discover their skills, abilities, interests, strengths, and career goals.

TEP participants take an interest/need inventory, participate in work-based learning, receive Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) general certification training provided by the Arkansas Career Development Center, have opportunities to complete additional career certifications such as CPR, receive job exploration counseling and self-advocacy, participate in work-place readiness training as well as post-secondary education counseling.

The items must be emailed to and by March 15.

As a last resort, applicants can mail their TEP Application by March 15 to:
