Participation in Academics and Career Exploration

The P.A.C.E. program can:

  • Assist clients determining their career and/or academic interests;
  • Teach clients how to find the jobs they want and apply for them;
  • Support clients (if needed) while they are getting either paid or unpaid work experience;
  • Help clients find and access educational courses in the community; and
  • Support clients to set up a study schedule; and
  • Support clients to implement Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) strategies, which help them to meet their personal goals and improve their overall quality of life.



The DDRC has been running the P.A.C.E. program since 1996 and has assisted more than 50 young adults in their transition from high school to the working world. Many of P.A.C.E. graduates have gone on to further their education, find work in their own areas of interest and become contributing members to the community.
