The Yachad Vocational Program offers participants the opportunity to join a mainstream camp as a specialty staff member. Fun camp activities balance their day, along with opportunities to build relationships with peers.
Job coaches provide personalized supervision and support, helping each participant perform their job independently. The program director, head staff and on-call clinical supervisors are always available to offer additional assistance when needed.
We work with each participant to achieve their goals throughout the summer, pushing them towards more learning and responsibility.
Participants work 4-6 hours a day on job sites like sports programs, dining hall, art room, and more. Although there is a cost to participate, each participant comes home with a hard-earned stipend.
