WorkAbility I (WAI) is a grant funded transition program administered by the California Department of Education, Special Education Division. The program is for special education students ages 16 –22 years old and promotes career awareness and exploration while students complete their education program. WAI provides students with opportunities for paid and work-based learning experiences, along with ongoing support and guidance from Employment Specialists. Students receive training and assistance with their transition to work or college.

The mission of WAI is to promote the involvement of key stakeholders including students, families, educators, employers and other agencies in planning and implementing an array of services that will culminate in successful student transition to competitive integrated employment (CIE), lifelong learning, and quality of life.
