Embodying an Employment First Philosophy

Supported Employment

People who choose Springbrook’s Supported Employment programs are looking for support through all phases of the professional experience. These supports can include but are not limited to classroom training, individualized coaching, and assistance with the application and interview process. Supported Employment programs are designed to gradually decrease as a person becomes more comfortable in their work environment. Supported Employment is accessible to all people who meet the OPWDD eligibility and waiver requirements, as well as the New York State Department of Labor age requirements.

Pathway to Employment

Pathway to Employment is a planning and support service that provides assistance for people to obtain, maintain or advance in a competitive employment environment or self-employment. The program is a year-long intensive prevocational service that is focused on discovering what type of job a person is best suited to work.

Community Prevocational Services

Community Prevocational Services are specifically designed to prepare people for paid employment or volunteer opportunities, by building job-specific skills. A person may work on training related to following directions, attending to a task, task completion, solving problems, and safety. A person may also work on adjusting to the productive and social relationship demands of the workplace. This program builds skills by facilitating volunteer opportunities in a variety of work environments as well as job readiness training to prepare people for future employment opportunities.
