Adolescent and adult services are comprised of two separate collections of programs, Pursuits and Recruits. All programming is empirically based, individualized, and placement is determined by the participant’s motivation, current level of functioning, and program need. Depending on the program and the skill set of the participant, the staffing model ranges from a one-to-one ratio to teaching in a group learning format.

Recruits Program

 

Recruits programs are designed to provide individuals with supported work experience at a variety of community locations. Participants are given the same training as entry level employees, and develop both job specific skills and the more “hidden agenda” of social expectations in an employment setting. To be eligible for any of these community placements, the individual must have attended and completed at least one Pursuits program previously.
