Employment and Training
Our employment programs focus on community safety, employability and work skills. Clients are supported to learn more about professional dress, social skills and job task completion. Through our EmployAbility program we partner with companies in our community to give clients the opportunity to gain experience at a variety of jobs and locations. Supported Employment assists clients in both obtaining and maintaining community-based employment. Supported Education is a unique program designed to give participants support and guidance as they develop marketable skills through post-secondary education.
Our Project SEARCH internship program places young adults with special needs, who have completed their high school graduation requirements, in a real working environment, giving them skills to prepare for the workforce. Easter Seals Iowa supports our clients to work in their community to gain greater independence.
