Employment Success

Many leading businesses in the Washington DC Metropolitan area have partnered with The Arc Prince George’s County to employ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and have found them to be indispensable members of their workforce. We provide the education, training and skills necessary to help the people we support obtain and maintain successful employment.

 

The Arc employment staff also works with prospective employers to match the right job candidate to meet the employer’s needs. An Arc Job Trainer works with the new employee until both employer and employee are satisfied that they meet all the job requirements at no cost to the employer.  Even though the employee is on the company’s payroll and receives company benefits, once hired the job trainer then stays connected to the employer and employee with drop-in support visits, perhaps on a weekly basis or as more training is necessary.

Local and regional businesses regularly contact The Arc Prince George’s County as a resource to fulfill their employment labor needs.  Our staff provides employment training and support for group employment and 1:1 job placements. The Arc has assisted workers with placements in variety types of work including food service, office administration, custodial, retail stocking, and customer service. The employees are hired directly by employers and the supports from The Arc are at no cost to the employer.
