Vocational Services

Vocational services can help people to get a job, and keep a job

These services may be offered in your school, through the Mass Rehab Commission (MRC), or through other local organizations.

Services include:

  • assessments of skills and interests

  • career counseling

  • work readiness training (general work skills like dressing and communicating in appropriate ways, being responsible, etc.)

  • job training

What a vocational service organization can do:

  • Help to explore careers, identify areas for training, build skills, and connect to opportunities.

  • Connect you with local employers who hire people with disabilities and have an accepting work environment.

  • Help you find supported employment. This might mean having a personal job coach, or a specific job placement with ongoing support.
