Applications are now being accepted by Brevard Achievement Center for its new employment program, "BACk to Work," which offers adults with a documented disability the chance to learn new skills they can use in the workforce.
The BACk to Work program was developed out of a $1 million state grant allocation designated to BAC this summer and funded through the state of Florida's Agency for Persons with Disabilities.
The program's goal is to assist adults with disabilities in obtaining skills needed to acquire and maintain community employment by partnering with local employers.
These employers will serve as "host sites" to offer job site rotations for clients to participate in during a 14-week internship.
Two internship sessions will be offered with the first to begin on Sept. 4. A second session will begin in January.
The goal is for the client to be ready and able to obtain community employment at the completion of the internship using the skills they have learned.
Those interested in applying for the Sept. 4 internship can do so in person at Brevard Achievement Center, 1845 Cogswell St., Rockledge, or by contacting Klenke at (321) 632-8610, Ext. 261 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
