Pre-Vocational Training helps to develop skills that are needed for community employment opportunities. This service teaches skills that promote effective and appropriate communication with coworkers and customers, the ability to follow directions, attend to task, problem solving strategies and safety. The service can be delivered in a classroom style setting or in the community. Eden offers a variety of Pre-Vocational Training that includes working on skills in the Eden Threads screen-printing shop, the wood shop or community volunteer placements. This service is provided in preparation for securing competitive community based employment. This service is delivered in a face to face setting, either one-on-one with a participant or in a group of two to eight participants. A few examples of Prevocational Training are:
- Job Clubs
- Basic computer skill classes
- Improving/learning workplace safety
- Volunteer Experiences
