Summer Earn And Learn

The Summer Earn & Learn program provides students with disabilities ages 14-22 with work readiness training and paid work experience. Summer Earn & Learn is a statewide strategy that includes employability skills training and paid work experience for students with disabilities. Last year, more than 1,500 students across Texas participated in SEAL and worked in positions as design graphics assistants, customer service representatives, peer counselors and others, with 600 employers.

SEAL includes basic work-based learning and training services for students with disabilities that provide:

  • pre-employment work readiness training and preparation for the work experience placement;

  • work experience to help participants gain familiarity with the workplace environment and develop transferable job skills; and

  • paid compensation for time worked on the job.
