Discover your tomorrow.

Our Career and Transition Services (CATS) program helps youth and young adults acquire the skills they need to attend college and join the workforce. We help those with severe emotional, behavioral and academic challenges as well as those with moderate to severe developmental disabilities.

Participants gain problem solving, communication, and networking skills as well as knowledge of career and life opportunities through classroom instruction and hands-on experiences. Our goal is to help each participant envision and attain a productive and stimulating future. We partner with local businesses and colleges to give participants exposure to real-world work and education environments through the Villa Pros career mentoring program. Find out how you can become a mentor.

Our innovative work centers on the Villa campus include:

  • Culinary program
  • Learning & Therapy Garden
  • Student snack preparation and delivery program
  • Campus-wide shredding program
  • Recycling program
  • Donation Center

For more information, please email Matthew Kreydatus, Director of Career and Transition Services, or call 804-553-3224.
