Post-Secondary Transition Program, LGSUHSD

Carlos Lamoso, Teacher at the Post Secondary Transition Program and Kristi St George, Workability I & Transition Partnership Program Coordinator with our Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District will share their efforts in teaching and supporting local young adults after high School with job skills.

Not only will they describe the programs they lead, offer a glimpse on the varied strengths the young adults bring, but also propose a format for our local business owners that can lead to more job skills and employment opportunities.    

Carlos Lamoso has taught in the Postsecondary Program in the Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District since 2013.  Prior to this he taught transition in Oakland and San Francisco from 2009-2013.  Postsecondary Programs teach life skills and employment training to young adults aged 18-22.  

Mouna Raad, Education and Mental Health Program Manager at Parents Helping Parents, is happy to share the new Connections California hub at PHP, aiming to inform and support families and (ages 12 to 26, and beyond!) on transition for students who will need additional supports and guidance to be successful in this process.
