Providing Individuals with Disabilities Short-Term Employment Exploration and Paid Job Training
LCS Explore offers individuals with disabilities short-term employment exploration and paid job training so they fully understand all of their community-based employment options and related workplace expectations. Community employment is the expected outcome of short term participation in LCS Explore.
LCS Explore participants engage in guided tours of area businesses and take community-based educational workshops covering a variety of relevant employment topics. Community volunteerism and participation in group-based Discovery help participants explore their unique employment interests, strengths, and challenges.
LCS Explore staff work with participants when they are ready to submit applications to the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) for Community Employment; an important goal of LCS Explore.
