It is never too early to start transition planning for children, teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With the support and guidance of Arc of Westchester’s Navigation Team, we will break down the transition process into small, sequential steps.
Choices is for people 18 years and up and its main mission is to help people find their unique skills and talents as they are transitioning from a school setting to the workplace. Through Choices people grow as individuals and develop valuable life skills that they will be able to bring to their future jobs. Ninety percent of people who participate in the Choices Program go on to be gainfully employed.
Career Achievement Training & Internships
The Career Achievement Training & Internship program provides training and services to young adults to help them transition from high school to the working world. The program includes a series of classes and internships that gives people the skills and real-world training they need to ultimately secure paying jobs. We recognize that everyone is different and our program allows people to progress through classes and internship rotations at their own speed.
Adult Employment Services
As part of our Adult Employment Services program we have hundreds of people working in paid jobs throughout the community. Arc of Westchester job placement specialists work closely with the employers and the employees to make sure that the individual is contributing to the company’s workplace in a meaningful way. The program is also designed to ensure that participants are continually building their marketable job skills.
