Entry provides on-the-job training in an integrated community setting.

Entry is a community-integrated, on-the-job training program conducted at a partner job site with additional soft skill instruction. While training at the community partner’s site, each Entry training program participant is provided with individualized instruction, job coaching and work experience. Entry is made possible with collaboration between Opportunity Village, the Desert Regional Center, and our community business partners. The Entry Training Program helps to determine the next step towards independent community employment.
