Employment Readiness Service – ArcWorks

We are a contract manufacturer here in Rochester,
NY that employs individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. This place gives everybody who has a disability
an opportunity, and that’s what makes this place great. It’s a joy to have them learn different capabilities
to be able to go out into the community and work full time. ArcWorks is a great hands-on experience. Most of the people we support here are working
on services and supports to help them get jobs in the community. We work in conjunction with the work area. They are on the work floor for about 4 to
4 and a half hours a day. And for an hour and a half extra they come
in here, and they learn how to be a better employee while they’re out in the community. So the whole experience while they’re in this
building is to learn the skills that they need to get a job in the community. I really like the people that I work with. I really like the jobs that we work on. I like the fact that I’m able to come to a
job every single day and feel accomplished. Those are the types of things that we love
to see here is people showing improvement and making that decision to transition into
employment when they feel like they’re ready and they have those skills. What’s most special to me is the people that
we support and the love that they have for being here and doing the work that they’re
doing. This is the place to be. This is definitely the place to be…
