Transition Services

Monarch Transition Services is dedicated to providing transitional residential and career opportunities for Monarch graduates and other young adults in the community.

Transition Services guides students toward increased capacity for employment, education and life outside their family home. Each Transition Services resident is expected to have either a day-time schedule of employment, on or off campus internship, vocational or ongoing academic training. Staffed by The Monarch Institute faculty, Transition Services bridges the gap between school and adult life and sustains the teaching and core focus of our mission.

Residences within walking distance of the campus are home to three young adults, each with their own personal room. Residents enjoy an individualized program to support growth and competence in living apart from their parents. Local apartments also provide living space opportunities for learners who are ready for more independent self-management. The Monarch Institute provides case management and coaching for these learners in transition.

Transition Services Employability Program is progressive; all learners begin with on-campus internships to engage in on-the-job skills training. As students gain skills, they move to either off-campus externships for additional skills training or paid employment. The ultimate goal for Transition Services learners, who are on the Employment Track, is to acquire a paid position with a company that matches the learner’s skills.

Careful consideration is given to ensure the learners are placed in appropriate employment positions. In addition, some learners attend college, either at Houston Community College or Lone Star. Some learners manage both college and work, and continue to access support from Monarch faculty.
