The goal of entry is that upon completion, participants would move on to an OV contract position, Pathway to Work or competitive employment.
Entry is our newest training program! It currently operates at one location, Fletcher Jones Imports Car Wash. Entry is for people who are not quite ready for Pathway to Work, but are ready for some off-campus vocational training. After 6-12 months, the goal is for participants to move on to an OV contract position, Pathway to Work, or competitive employment.
