The Arc Employment Services

Ready to Work in the Community

Individuals with disabilities have proven time and time again to be outstanding employees for businesses like yours.

Corporate managers rank employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities high in dependability motivation and dedication.

 

Individual PlacementStacking boxes

Individuals seeking employment within a community setting are guided by The Arc Jacksonville toward positions best suited to their abilities. The professional coaches of The Arc Jacksonville consult with employers to identify their unique needs, analyze job duties to determine positions most appropriate for the job seeker and select interviewees who are the best match for the job.

Those seeking a job receive pre-employment skill building, job search assistance, and work training in particular duties. After securing employment, the job coach provides job-site training in specific skills and counseling on work-related behaviors, including social skills to the employee.

 

Small Group Placement

For individuals who work best among their peers, The Arc small group model places three to five participants with I/DD among employees who are not disabled to work as a team on-site at the company. Supervisors provide on-site training and support as the work is accomplished.
