At Projects Drive Group, everyone has the opportunity to create a meaningful day based on the things they would like to do and the way they want to be supported. Days can include working at a job, volunteering, going to school, learning new things, and enjoying hobbies.

Employment options: PDG is committed to providing meaningful employment services designed to meet the unique needs of each person we support. Career development is available through classes, employment readiness programs, and job exploration activities. Work opportunities are available at PDG based on contracts from local businesses. Responsibilities include tasks such as packaging, kitting, light assembly, inspection, sorting, labeling, and more. Additional work opportunities are available at enclaves where four to eight individuals work together at an area business. Many individuals work at jobs in the community and attend PDG on their days off.

Creative outlets: PDG provides an opportunity for those with an interest in creative arts to develop their own business by creating and selling their art or craft goods. Others enjoy developing their art, music, and exercise skills by attending classes to learn to paint, sew, make jewelry, play an instrument, or dance.

Hobbies and skills: Clubs and classes are offered at PDG to provide a way to enjoy hobbies or learn new skills. Clubs include such things as karate, Zumba, making balloons for clowns, playing board games, ancestry research, and writing to pen pals. Reading and money management classes are also available.

Community involvement: Individuals at PDG frequently attend community events such as TinCaps games, touring the Sechler’s pickle factory, or gardening at Wellspring Community Center. Giving back to the community through our volunteer efforts has benefited such organizations as Summit Equestrian Center, Hope for Animals, Community Harvest Food Bank, Junior Achievement, and many local child care and nursing facilities.
