Program participants with the skills and ability to work at a competitive level work individually with an Employment Specialist (ES) to identify an appropriate job match, learn job-seeking skills and to be placed in a job with an area employer.

Competitive employment is defined as earning minimum wage or higher with the participant being paid directly by the employer.

The ES provides initial on-the-job coaching to ensure success in employment. Ongoing support for the participant focuses on job duties / work performance, employer feedback, relationships with coworkers, and any other issue that may affect the participant’s job success. An Individualized Service Plan (ISP) is established for each participant to guide effective, person-centered service delivery.
