 Start on Success (SOS) is a school-to-work internship program started in 1995 by the National Organization on Disability. Students with disabilities on track for a standard or advanced studies high school diploma participate in SOS during their senior year of high school. The goals of this employerbased, highly structured program are to build stronger relationships between schools and the business community, to increase the career potential of students with high incidence disabilities, and to prepare students for employment after high school. Virginia is piloting this program in three school divisions: Norfolk, City of Richmond, and Danville.
