School Transitions

Part of a transition plan for a student who is moving from school to life in the community includes career and employment planning. A member of our Supported Employment team can attend these meetings at your request to start this valuable connection to employment. 

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for competitive community based paid employment. We prepare the student by introducing them to the world of work, career awareness, workplace expectations, life and career skills. We develop a plan of action and move through the stages of goal setting and skill building into job development.

ECBP Testimonials

Being a part of this program and this group has brought out so many things that I had not known I had deep within myself. My confidence, the acclamation from my classmates made me feel on top of the world anytime I had a rocky start to my day. It was a true learning experience for everyone, with mind, body, and soul. I was hesitant at first to join but the group that Niamh combined was nothing short of perfect. I recommend this program to anybody who has a hard time with finding their place in the community & it gives so many opportunities. ECBP was a safe haven for me, I would absolutely be ecstatic to come back even for a small reunion. As well as a big thank you to all the Community Services staff for being so kind, I appreciated all of their presence each day I came in.


Through practical instruction and covid-friendly interaction, the ECBP has thus far put me in a better position to transition into future employment. Niamh you’ve put some “blue sky thinking” into my head and your magical wand has started to bring out some of my “blue sky strengths.” Although I wish this program would continue, I am happy that it provided me with purpose, a reason to get out of bed, structure, some confidence, and a sense of hope for the future. I am leaving with valuable certifications, time management techniques, customer service and interview skills, goal- setting strategies, and friendships.


Work Crew Testimonial

I needed some immediate assistance with a project I had taken on and was having difficulty finding workers on short notice. The Work Crew sent over all the help I needed, in short order, exceeding my time expectations. They were hard and dedicated workers who remained diligent in their tasks until the work was completed, staying past their original requested time to complete the work. I am beyond impressed and would be happy to hire them again any time I need help! MB
