Pathways to Community Engagement and Employment

Pathways, a united effort led by CJP, provides career support to adults with a range of disabilities, and includes services like vocational skills assessments, trainings, internships, community service projects and job placements.  In the fall of 2011, Pathways introduced its first phase, Transitions to Work, program that helps young adults with disabilities find and sustain long-term employment. Additional programs are scheduled to launch in the summer of 2012. Pathways is a partnership with Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) and Jewish Family & Children’s Service.

Pathways is for:
Jewish adults with a documented disability who want to work and can be work-ready within two years.

Pathways Partcipants will receive:

  • Life and work skills training
  • Career exploration and internships
  • Customized work skills training
  • Employment placement and follow-up services to ensure long-term success and job retention

Pathways is made possible through the collaboration of CJP, our generous funders, Jewish Vocational Service, Jewish Family & Children’s Service and employer partners.
