What do we provide for individuals with disabilities?
Vocational Rehabilitation & Day Services
At our Cleveland locations, we provide programming that is customized to each individual and takes into consideration their goals, needs, and interests.
Community based work sites
Learn important workplace readiness skills
Individuals with disabilities work at a community site under the guidance of VGS Rehabilitation Specialists. Workers are able to earn a paycheck while learning important workplace readiness skills and receiving technical training. The goal of the program is for participants to be hired in competitive, integrated jobs.
Job Placement Services
Integrated employment with local businesses
VGS’ placement team works directly with individuals to determine career interests, goals, strengths, and areas of opportunity. VGS staff supports the search for competitive, integrated employment with local businesses while they transition to employment.
Summer Youth Work Experiences
High school students and recent high school graduates with disabilities can earn a paycheck, gain skills, and begin exploring career options through our six-week Summer Youth Work Experience (SYWE) programming. Each student is supported, on-site, by a VGS job coach.
Pre-Employment Transition Services
Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ets) provides students with disabilities, ages 14–21 with opportunities to explore career interests, gain hands-on job experiences, receive postsecondary education counseling, and receive workplace readiness training.
