Employment Readiness – Project Genesis helps students explore their interests and develop the skills necessary to get and keep a job, including navigating the job search and application process, social and interviewing skills, timeliness and transportation, and work safety and policy compliance.
Independent Living – In community settings, we help students develop important life skills such as cooking, cleaning, hygiene, health and nutrition, time and money management, organizational skills, communication and social skills, self-advocacy, and positive behavior strategies.
Community Engagement – Knowing how to navigate one’s community is critical to becoming a full and contributing member of it. We help students learn to use public transportation, run errands like shopping and banking, access common services like the library and the doctor, find and enjoy recreational and volunteer activities, and explore housing options.
We also help students connect with adult service agencies such as the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS), Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) or Department of Developmental Services (DDS).
