WACOSA provides a variety of job opportunities that match the skills and interests of the people we serve. They include:
- Individual Placement includes job search and development as well as assistance to the employer in their initial job training. Intermittent follow-along services are then provided to assist the worker in achieving successful and long-term employment.
- Work Crew provides employment at a business and consists of four workers and a WACOSA job coach. Workers are trained to complete all or part of the job depending on their individual ability level. This type of employment option offers a worker a job in the community with staff supervision.
- In-center work is completed at one of WACOSA’s program sites and generally includes assembly, packaging, labeling and confidential document shredding.
