Participation Requirements

In order to attend iCareer, you must go through Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselor and obtain a referral.

If you currently have an active status with VR, contact your counselor and let them know that you would like to participate in The Arc Jacksonville’s iCareer program and would like a referral sent to The Arc Jacksonville.

If you do not have an active status with VR, you must fill out and submit a STAR Referral Form. Forms can be submitted to Andreas.Glover@vr.fldoe.org.

Once submitted an accepted and intake interview will be scheduled. You will then be assigned a VR Counselor who you will tell that you would like to attend The Arc Jacksonville’s iCareer program.

Please submit this form to VR as soon as possible. iCareer is free IF you go through VR. If a STAR Referral Form is not submitted and a referral is not obtained from VR, iCareer costs $3,360 per two-week session.
