Employment

Since planning early is essential for youth with intellectual disabilities, Lifeworks actively partners with area high schools.

  • Our unique ‘School- to- Work’ program gives students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience prior to graduating.
  • By attending Lifeworks programs before the age of 22, young adults acquire marketable vocational skills and acclimate gradually to a work setting, resulting in more successful post-school outcomes.
  • Lifeworks’ professional job coaches train students both in the classroom and on-site until they feel comfortable working independently and with greater confidence in their community jobs.

Each of our job coaches has experience in human services and a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree. Lifeworks is very proud of their dedication, long-term service and motivation.

In collaboration with our Job Development Manager, our team excels at maintaining long-lasting relationships with Lifeworks’ diverse employer and community partners.
