Community-Based Pre-Vocational Training

Life’s WORC provides work-readiness training that focuses on teamwork, conflict resolution, dressing for the job, and self-advocacy which will enhance skills for employability.

Employment Training Program

Life’s WORC Employment Training Program (ETP) starts with a rigorous Discovery phase where skills and interests are assessed. The next phase allows you to engage in different industries and environments in short internships. In the Job Coaching phase, participants will gain paid experience while they are supported by a dedicated job coach. These intensive job supports can scale forward or back based on need with the eventual goal of the participant working in their role independently.
