Enhanced Services For Orange County Students
employU is now offering enhanced services* to Traditional Transition students and Pre-ETS students in Orange County. In addition to Vocational Rehabilitation services such as Work Readiness Training, Self–Advocacy Classes, Work-Based Learning Experiences, and Career Camps, grants through Orange County and Subaru have made it possible for employU to offer Orange County students additional services. These services include travel assistance, vocational interest career assessments, industry specific certifications, and paid industry–specific work experiences.
These enhanced services will not only elevate the experiences participants have, the travel assistance service will also allow for an expansion in travel radius for candidates who qualify for and are able to benefit from the services offered. Through Uber Vouchers, students who would otherwise not have the means of transportation to receive and participate in these services will now have a viable travel option at no cost to them.
With the increased availability of vocational interest career assessments, Pre-ETS students will also be able to receive Vocational Evaluation services to become aware of how their specific skill sets and interests translate into career paths in particular industries. All participants will also have the opportunity to earn a competitive hourly wage of $11/hour while gaining industry–specific experience that will help them with long-term career goals. During these experiences, students can complete industry specific certifications, making them more attractive permanent–hire candidates. One such certification is the OSHA 10 certification, which teaches safety practices for highly skilled positions. Of course, the certifications will vary based on industry, but training support will be provided for each certification training.
employU is looking forward to being able to offer these much-needed enhanced services to the community of Orange County and would like to thank Subaru and Orange County, not only for working with us to make this possible, but also for supporting employU’s continued efforts to find new ways to assist our community.
