The Arc of the Quad Cities Area‘s Spring Parent Learning Series wraps up with “Job Training and Community Employment Services” on May 25 from 7 to 8 p.m.
The workshop is provided via Zoom.

Learn about Job Corps, a residential training program funded by the Department of Labor, and The Arc’s Community Employment Services (CES) Program.
Presenter Andrea Taylor will provide information about Job Corps, a program for students ages 16 to 24 where they can earn their high school diploma or GED, driver’s license and learn a skilled trade. Job Corps also assists with job placement, retention and advanced training.
CES places individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in jobs throughout the Quad Cities Area. Job developers assess the needs of the employers as well as the skills and abilities of the individuals seeking employment. Through job matching and job coaching, CES provides local businesses with quality employees while reducing employers’ turnover and absenteeism.
