We welcome EMPLOYERS!
Summer (unpaid) Internship Sites Needed. Every summer, we partner with community employment sites to provide hands-on, real-life work opportunities for our high school students who participate in our Summer Work Skills Preparation Program. If you are able to provide the work site location, we’ll provide the rest! Not only will we match someone to job shadow and fulfill the tasks, but we’ll provide staff to work ;alongside of them during the entire shift. We are looking for employers to sign up for a 1 to 4 week commitment, and approximately 2 hour shifts.
Are you hiring?
- Are you an employer interested in hiring a qualified, dependable job seeker?
- Are you unsure where to begin?
- Do you already have a person on your staff, but maybe lack confidence to provide natural support?
- Are you looking for techniques that may be meaningful to work for everyone on your team?

We work with SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES!
Are you a Supported Employment Agency that has job seekers with sensory and complex disabilities including those who are deafblind, blind and/or vision impaired? Do you need more strategies or confidence to support this individual(s) through exploring the process of seeking gainful employment or on the job training?
