Our Services

Prevocational Training

Community Inclusion

At Joey's Quest, we are dedicated to providing pre-vocational services tailored to adults with disabilities, aiming to nurture essential work skills, abilities, and interests that pave the path to community-based employment in integrated work settings. Our pre-vocational program encompasses various key elements. We help individuals identify their vocational abilities and employment interests, complete work inventories and questionnaires, and master effective professional communication skills with co-workers, supervisors, and customers. Conflict resolution and adherence to workplace safety rules are also crucial aspects we focus on. Through diverse volunteer opportunities, our program helps participants develop professional skills with a long-term employment outlook if that is what they desire from the program. Our curriculum specialists continually craft engaging lesson plans with hands-on activities to expand opportunities and equip individuals with transferable job skills, ultimately aiming for community employment. In our approach, we prioritize cultivating positive work habits and essential skills, valuing personal talents and encouraging their enhancement, rather than emphasizing job-specific knowledge. Join Joey's Quest's PreVocational Training program to embark on a journey of skill development and empowerment, tailored to your unique goals and aspirations.
