Transition & Pre-vocational Programs
Real-world experiences are progressively introduced, while soft work skills are honed as the student goes through six transition levels that would prepare him to become as self-sufficient as he could possibly be. Students practice daily living skills, self-determination, interpersonal and prevocational skills related to housekeeping, clerical work, basic baking and food and beverage service. ALRES has partnered with a TESDA-accredited professional baking school, Artisan Baking Institute, and with Puzzle Gourmet Store & Cafe and Cucina Di Francesco in order to provide on-the job training during the last two years of the transition program. Our students are given administrative, kitchen and dining duties under industry mentors, as they discover and develop attitudes, interests and skills that may help them attain their transition goals and long-term plans in collaboration with their families.
