Career and Professional Development

Competitive employment is a priority for any college graduate, and students with intellectual and developmental disabilities are no exception.

Attached is our new Job Toolkit that has important information for students and recent graduates:

 Job Toolkit

The Career Development component is designed to ensure that students become competent workers and that they will be able to secure and maintain meaningful and competitive employment when they graduate from the program.

The component utilizes a series of classes and seminars to develop fundamental work tools as well as the soft skills that are critical to employment success.

REACH students enhance their classroom training with on-the-job skills that are gained through internships and career coaching.

A new initiative has been started in collaboration with the Entrepreneurship Department of Cofc. Please use the link to access more information.
