Customized employment program

Flexible, Part-time Jobs Draw on Employees’ Strengths

Our Customized Employment Program (CEP) meets the needs of Skills Inc. employees with disabilities who need to work part-time for a variety of reasons. It is a great fit for those who are entering the workplace for the first time, re-entering the workforce or who may face significant barriers to employment.

CEP employees excel in various roles, from janitorial and administrative to quality-assurance and production. They receive in-depth training, job coaching, access to a benefits specialist, and ongoing support. Program participants are integrated throughout the organization, across multiple locations and departments.

Typically, CEP members start out in our Vocational Services Program. Only if an individual’s strengths, interests and abilities match a current business need within the organization do they have an opportunity to transition into a part-time position in the CEP.
