Become an Employment / Community Support Facilitator
This is a rewarding job with fun people in a beautiful setting!!
Our small organization is non-site based, meaning that our clients do not congregate in a segregated building or center. All support is provided in natural environments in the community where our clients are participating in enjoyable and productive activities like any other adults.
PDS is considered to be a progressive program and implements current best practices in the fields of vocational/special education. Our clients are gainfully employed part time in businesses where they are directly hired and paid at least minimum wage at cool places like Costco, Whole Foods and Banana Republic.
Our Employment/Community Support Facilitators "job coach" at our clients' places of employment, support clients in the community, at their classes at College of Marin and drive them in their personal vehicles. Generally our staff work with clients between the hours of 8 AM and 3 PM, Monday through Friday and attend a weekly staff meeting on Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:00 PM.
