Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Vocational Adjustment Center (VAC), a private non-profit organization, provides evaluation, training and employment services to people with disabilities and others in need of employment services to achieve career goals and improve their quality of life. The agency promotes choice, dignity, respect and independence while assisting individuals to maximize work opportunities and earning potential.
VAC’s Job Placement Program is designed to provide job seekers with the tools they need to succeed in their effort to gain meaningful employment. VAC has a long history of providing this service and strives to improve and expand the program each year. Our success is due to our understanding the supports necessary to help our job seekers find a good job match.
People with disabilities are valuable resources for our economy, yet their skills and potential are often underused or ignored. VAC is working to reverse these trends and insure that all people have the opportunity to realize the dignity of employment. Because each person’s strengths, challenges and goals are unique, successful placement is built upon personal attention. Services are delivered through weekly career counseling meetings at our Watertown office or other community location.
VAC's Job Developers work one-on-one to develop and help carry out a vocational plan that is directed by the person's interests and abilities. Looking for work can be tedious and scary but having a supportive Job Developer by your side helps eliminate these fears. They also actively market to local businesses, belong to various networking groups dedicated to expanding employment options for people with disabilities, and are familiar with hiring practices in the area.
