Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to Connections 2022-2023 school year!  Connections is one of the transition services offered through the 4J Transition Program.  Our goal is to help students with the transition from High School to independent living.  High school graduates with a modified diploma or a GED, and who have received Special Education Services are eligible for this program.  Zach Griffith, Anders Pettersson and Jasmin Quitta will be your Connections supporting teachers.

Connections is a full or part time individualized program designed to support students between the ages of 18-21 in developing and reaching their goals as they move into adulthood. The Connections curriculum focuses on promoting the skills needed to be successful in vocational, educational, independent living and social settings.  As part of our program, we can provide assistance in accessing community services which students may be eligible for.  Instruction takes place in several locations within the community, depending on student need.  Students may take part in small group seminars, vocational work crews and/or individual advocate sessions designed to support each student’s goals.

The Connections staff will host informational meetings on:

  • Tuesday September 6th at 6:30pm in person at the Connections building at 2120 Bailey Hill Rd, Eugene OR 97403

Or on ZOOM—

We will be holding orientation/registration during the next week (September 12-16th 2022).  Seminars/advocates will begin on September 19, 2022. Latest calendar updates and a link to the zoom meeting are posted on the Connections’ Website http://blogs.4j.lane.edu/connections/.
