Areas of Specialization
Skills Training believes that the pathway to meaningful work for all abilities starts with us. As individuals determine a career path, Skills Training provides training and support to develop individuals’ skill sets, prepare for job expectations and connect with the Department of Rehabilitation Services as they take the next step to competitive integrated employment. Skills Training also offers Group Supported Employment, in partnership with local businesses, so that individuals can build confidence and refine skills needed to be successful.
Skills Training supports individuals in their community in a variety of ways. Our program works with individuals to explore careers in order to find the one that is right for them. This is done through training sessions, virtual job shadowing, visiting local employers and internship opportunities. Skills Training partners with many local community organizations to ensure that individuals can participate in community service and volunteer opportunities that match their areas of interest. The program also believes that individuals should have fun in their community, so we support individuals to get engaged with their local community through leisure and social activities as well.
The Skills Training program believes that a person becomes most successful by improving themselves in all areas. We provide training in a variety of ways that help the individual become all they aspire to be including health and wellness, skills building training sessions in financial literacy, healthy relationships, communication and much more. We focus on developing individual’s self-advocacy skills focusing on self, others, system change and legislative issues.
