Job Development, Placement & Training

 

The Arc Rockland offers several opportunities for job training, pre-vocational skill building  and subsequent job placement.

Through our Employment Services Department participants learn to master the interview technique, develop resumes and receive extensive job-specific training.

We have joined with prominent businesses and industries throughout Rockland County, from the food service industry to retail and manufacturing, maintenance or office work, there is a job waiting for the right person and the right person is ready for the job.

Our professional community specialists accompany employees on the job for as long as is necessary to ensure that work is completed to the employer’s satisfaction. The Arc arranges for transportation to and from each work site as necessary. Punctuality, efficiency, responsibility and a positive attitude are bywords when it comes to workers with intellectual and other developmental disabilities hired through The Arc.

We offer a variety of employment training programs that develop job readiness skills alongside a comprehensive plan for achieving competitive, integrated employment at or above the New York State minimum wage. Volunteer opportunities enable people to navigate the work environment in preparation for gainful employment.

Our post-high school campus at Franklin Square provides practical training that enables our program participants to gain the skills and confidence necessary to enter the world of employment.

In addition, The Arc Rockland chairs a Business Advisory Council that provides leadership, expertise and guidance within the local business community. The Council's goals include increasing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, expanding options within the surrounding areas and creating additional business ventures. The Council also promotes awareness of the benefits of hiring dedicated, well-trained individuals of all abilities.
