Skills Training Programs
We offer two on-site skill building programs to give teens and adults with special needs the opportunity to gain experience through hands-on job training. In addition to giving them specific job skills, these programs help individuals to function not only in the job market but in their daily lives as well—giving them a sense of self-worth, the ability to cooperate, and the sense of accomplishment necessary for success.
The programs we offer are:
