Training & Employment

Chronic unemployment and underemployment are often at the root of individual and family hardship and dysfunction. Family Service League has a series of proven job training and vocational programs designed to build skills and confidence. Offering job skill improvement, job search services and placement assistance, these programs help those who have had difficulty finding and maintaining regular employment, as well as job seekers who are battling mental illness.

This comprehensive computer-training program for individuals with disabilities helps students learn the necessary skills to obtain and maintain competitive employment. It not only mirrors the workplace to ensure students are prepared for the structure and demands of integrated employment; it also helps individuals develop insights regarding their vocational strengths and work-related needs. Every student graduates with entry-level competency in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and QuickBooks, and develops the skills needed to conduct internet job searches.
