Job Training Center

The Job Training Center prides itself on putting people with all levels of ability to work in a fulfilling and positive way. Participants are able to receive training, learn a variety of new skills, and earn a pay check for their hard work. 

The staff work with the individual and family to customize a plan and build accommodations that meet an individual’s interests, skills and ability.  Participants receive an evaluation, training plan and work station that it right for them. It remains the ultimate goal to help individuals find and maintain long-term, quality, competitive, community-integrated employment. Through our many business partnerships, program graduates are placed in jobs at companies such as Shop Rite, PennDot, Walmart, Prime Flight Aviation and WaWa.
