about us

CareerWorks is a personalized career consulting service for students with emotional, cognitive and/or physical challenges. We are founded on the principle that all people can perform a valued role in their communities and that all people can learn and grow. CareerWorks believes that employment services should be personalized to meet the individual needs of each person it serves. We believe that Career Development is a life long process that should be guided by the person and their personal goals. CareerWorks believes that when given the right planning and support people can achieve levels of independence and success that in earlier stages of their development seemed improbable or impossible.

Employment for CareerWorks means competitive employment where people receive wages and benefits commensurate with other employees performing similar work. We believe that with the right training and support all people can work and provide a valued service to their community. For people who have support needs, success depends on finding the right place of employment and means of support, not sheltering them from the society in which they live.

Through extensive individualized and personal planning we work with people to find what motivates them, identify the supports they need, and develop career plans that are both practical and exciting.
