EIASE partners with the Illinois Department of Human Services (Division of Rehabilitation Services) to provide STEP (Secondary Transitional Experiences Program) that is offered through our Pre-Vocational Department.  We are currently serving students in the following districts: Altamont, Arcola, Charleston, Effingham, Neoga, Paris, and Teutopolis.

The Pre-Vocational Department’s goal is to help turn strengths into accomplishments through vocational education, community partnership, and job training opportunities to transition young adults into the competitive world of work.  The Pre-Vocational Department works diligently in preparing our young adults with competitive job skills and placements to be productive citizens in our surrounding communities.
