What is the Employment Services Program

The Arc Prince George's County Employment Services Program offers individuals the opportunity to maximize their employment potential in an integrated work setting, while allowing businesses and other organizations to tap into a labor pool and provide work and training opportunities for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

How does it work?

At The Arc, staff will strive to ensure that individuals in the employment services program prosper in their chosen career in an inclusive setting. We take the following steps to ensure success:

  • Aggressive, continual community outreach to provide individuals with more employment opportunities and choices.
  • Assessments of skills and desires to place individuals in the most appropriate employment settings
  • Involvement of individual's support network in the employment process
  • On-site job coaching to ensure individual support and success
  • Coordination of resources for successful employment including assistance in completing applications, transportation, on the job training

What type of work do individuals in the program do?

  • Receptionist

  • Warehouse
  • Custodian
