Employment Services

Lifetrack's Employment Services expand educational horizons and open doors to meaningful career opportunities. We work with people with disabilities and people experiencing poverty to help launch and develop their careers.

Lifetrack’s Employment Services model relies on five key elements that include providing: mentoring supports to build resiliency and confidence, financial skill development, interval job retention supports, motivational interviewing and work-life balance supports.  All of these elements are interwoven into the services provided in these programs, which include:

  • Job Training:  Development of hard skills and acquisition of relevant credentials needed for success in high-demand, good-paying careers.  We work closely with area employers to ensure our participants are prepared to meet their needs.
  •  Employment Services:  Development of soft skills such as job searching, interviewing, resume-building and related activities needed for finding jobs, as well as one-on-one post-employment supports needed for retaining jobs. 
  •  Educational Advancement: Linkage to continuing education programs for High School Diplomas/GED, ESL, and other academic supports
  •  Financial Literacy Education:  Group and one-on-one instruction in working with the building blocks of financial security – setting up bank accounts, getting good credit, building savings and working toward financial goals.

Services for People with Disabilities

The goal of these innovative programs is to help people living with disabilities find and retain good jobs.  This includes individuals with mental illness as well as those with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, whose employment opportunities in the workforce have been limited but who are eager to find jobs in the community.
