Workforce Development

Workforce development.

The Workforce Development Program helps individuals obtain and advance in competitive, integrated employment. Our staff assists in identifying the type of work an individual enjoys - by exploring all available work options, acquiring new skills for a potential employment opportunity, completing applications in partnership with the individual being served, supporting those we serve in interviews and securing the most independent and cost effective transportation to get to work. 

Our DSP Employment Specialists utilize tools such as discovery and customized employment to place individuals in the most successful employment setting. Once initial job training is complete, our staff provides ongoing support. At OBI, we focus on an individual's capability, so truly the sky is the limit for achievement. The range of job and career opportunities extends from retail businesses, to fast-food restaurants, to production and manufacturing, and even to office operations in government agencies or in high-tech firms. Our goal is always to help those we serve maximize their potential to lead fulfilling lives.

Kicking off on Monday, July 11th, the program runs for 5 weeks Mondays-Thursdays at OBI. Students will be able to earn up to $100 each as they accomplish various milestones over the summer.
