Employment Services

Elmcrest Employment Services provides person-centered support to assist young adults with disabilities to become prepared for the workforce and achieve gainful employment in the community.

Each youth is partnered with a trained employment consultant to discover skills and abilities, career explore within their community, create community experiences, build independence and develop work skills.

Employment services include:

  • Employment Training Program (ETP)
    • Provides job readiness training, internships and job placement supports to young adults so they may reach personal and career goals.
  • Supported Employment (SEMP)
    • Includes intensive job development and coaching services for youth to sustain paid employment in the community.
  • Pre Voc
    • The goal of this service is to develop non-specific tasks and specific skills that enhance one’s ability to become a contributing member of his/her community.
  • Pathway to Employment
    • Employment planning and support service that provides assistance to young adults to obtain, maintain, or advance in meaningful employment or self-employment.
