Way2Work offers a unique continuum of employment supports for adults and youth with disabilities and/or other barriers to employment. These individualized supports range from pre-vocational and soft-skills development through skills and readiness assessments, job training, placement, to career development and advancement, to helping entrepreneurs with disabilities launch successful micro-businesses.
For more than 20 years, CCS has successfully helped people with intellectual disabilities or other “barriers” to employment find and maintain jobs, develop solid careers or even launch successful businesses in the competitive economy.
The mission of the Way2Work Program at CCS is to assist people with developmental disabilities find paid employment that is meaningful to them, valuable to their employer, and inclusive in the community.
Way2Work is more than a job placement program. We consider each individuals’ unique talents and career goals, assess and develop skills, and work together to connect with jobs and employers that match interests and complement abilities. And our state-of-the-art supports span the entire work cycle, from first job out of high school through retirement.
Our program has been named the top performing supported employment program in Vermont for each of the past eight (8) years, and earned a national Best Practices in Supported Employment award from APSE: The Network on Employment for its cutting edge approaches.
