Our programs are available free of charge to Westchester and Putnam County residents with disabilities. We currently offer:
Supported Employment Program
This is our main program in which we utilize a unique one-on-one approach to provide services, based on each individual’s needs. Employment services offered include job preparation support, creative job placement, on-the-job training, and ongoing support services.
We have developed several programs to address specific needs of our clients. These programs are:
High School Transition Program
Through this program, we reach out to high school juniors and seniors to help them make an easier transition into the workforce once they graduate. This early outreach prepares students to meet the challenges of getting a job and developing a career path.
Our Education and Employment Initiative reaches students with disabilities early in their employment search and helps them make a successful transition to the workforce by addressing their unemployment issues early, helping them acquire the experience needed to live productive and fulfilling lives.
CAREERS teaches life and job skills to students at various internship sites, providing job training and support to help the students reach their potential. Each employer offers a variety of jobs for students to explore, including food service, office skills and recreation, with students working in several departments during each school year. Our Employment Specialist work closely with employers and teachers to assure each student gets the full benefit of their internship and that the employer is satisfied with their performance.
Ambition In Motion – AIM
Our newest day habilitation program without walls bridges the gap for individuals who are not yet ready for a traditional supported employment program. Based on their interests, participants learn life and workforce readiness skills and participate in recreational activities. By interacting with and contributing to their community, these individuals gain a sense of independence and self-confidence.
