InnOVations Program Celebrates Anniversary

InnOVations celebrated its one year anniversary July 5, 2018. InnOVations is Orchard Village’s vocationally-focused skills building day program. Through both formal and informal training, participants obtain marketable vocational skills that match their goals, interests, and aptitudes, while increasing their employability for competitive jobs in the labor market. Clients have the opportunity to sample different work experiences and environments and are provided with varied opportunities to participate in work-site activities at over 10 different community based work sites and work 1:1 with a Employment Specialist. They also participate in a social skills curriculum focused on increasing opportunities for rich and meaningful relationships with peers in vocational and other community settings.

Over the past year InnOVations has grown to 20 regular participants and 2 have already secured jobs in the community! The program is growing and open for enrollment now.
