The Transition to Employment Program, known as TEP, provides career education and vocational training for Delta Students. Many of the older students volunteer at Community Based (Off-Campus) programs at various sites in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. We also participate in a wide array of paid job training programs some of which are customized according to the individual’s special needs as well as career goals. Additionally, new job placements are negotiated annually in order to lend diversity to the curriculum in this ever changing world of career choices.
Some of our past programs included off-campus work training at Associated Production Services, Inc. (APS) where the students received training in assembling materials, packaging, mail order processing, stocking and warehouse shipping. Another successful program was our contribution to the war effort by helping Elwyn Industries fold bandages that were used by the soldiers to attend cuts and bruises or be used as a splint for sprained limbs. We also had the opportunity to work at Jomar Corporation during their busy season in the warehouse pricing clothing and miscellaneous sales items.
One of our ongoing, current ventures is the Moss Rehabilitation / Einstein Hospital Volunteer Program. Delta students provide needed assistance in a variety of departments; several which include physical therapy, record storage, food services, and general building maintenance. Additional Off-Campus community based programs have been recently added to the Delta Transition Program.
