Supported Employment Services
In conjunction with Maryland’s “Employment First” initiative, Benedictine’s employment services provide a range of services including pre-employment education, career exploration, skills development, job coaching support, job development, and career focused training. We offer these services through our Supported Employment Program and our Easton Community Services and Training Center.
Benedictine has always believed in the value of work. If someone’s goal is to be competitively employed, it is our mission to help them achieve that goal. Our staff will assist in assessing the strengths and job goals for each person, then develop a plan to find the proper job match in their community. The staff will assist in skill training, job application and interview processes, and job support. After successful job placement, we continue to coordinate job support, communication with the employer, and any additional skill development.
“It’s amazing how willing the businesses around here are to help with training. Our people go to these establishments and get hands-on experience. It’s really the best of both worlds."
