Last Edited:

Students living with disabilities in Cumberland County were given the chance to explore possible career paths.

On Friday, March 8th, the Pineland Learning Center in Vineland hosted their 2nd annual Transition Resource & Career Fair for all their students ranging in age from 14 to 21 years old.

Officials say the goal of the day was to give their students a chance to interact with future employers face to face and discover what career path is the best fit for them.

"Pineland Learning Center always focuses on the best for the student," said Timeka Lively, job coach with the learning center. "So for us, we take pride in giving our students the most that we can [give] to them so that they can become successful when they leave or whatever their future may bring them to be [or] wherever they want to go after they leave Pineland Learning Center."

The Transition & Career Fair included a variety of local businesses and representatives from colleges as well as provided the students with the resources they need to ensure they have a smooth transition into the workforce.
