VIDEO: ‘One Day’ short film looks at life inside OCDE’s Adult Transition program

A new short film produced by OCDE’s Communications and Media Services unit follows one class of Adult Transition students at Harbor Learning Center (HLC) through a day in their life.

Filmed prior to COVID-19 pandemic, “One Day: Inside an Adult Transition Program” captures the unique stories and personalities of students and educators and provides an inside look at the program’s skill-based academics and community-based work experience and instruction.

HLC staff, students and families gathered virtually on Feb. 26 to premier the 20-minute documentary to those who appeared in the film and work closely with the program.

Within the OCDE’s Special Education Services division, Adult Transition programs help guide students with disabilities from the age of 18 through 22 to join their community and workforce in a meaningful and empowering way. The programs emphasize student independence, choice-making, individualized work experience, communication skills, money skills, integration with the college population, and transition to integrated work.
