The Unicorn Centers’ Job & Life Skills program prepares Unicorn clients for community employment by providing the support that each individual needs to experience success in the workplace.
 
All clients are treated in a manner consistent with a “real job”. Each client is assigned a Unicorn staff member as a supervisor, is given breaks and are expected to meet production demands within their abilities and are paid appropriately for their work.
 

Certified by the Department of Labor, clients participating in our Job & Life Skills program work at the Unicorn Centers on sub-contracted jobs in cooperation with area businesses. This is often the first experience that many have had holding a job. Unicorn takes pride in assuring that every client is paid for their work.

  • learn how to work with successfully others

  • learn to work with a supervisor
  • learn how to stay on task
  • practice working with job site tools & machines

Inbetween contract participation times, clients work with our exceptional staff - many of whom are retired teachers and business leaders. Clients participate in familiar school and classroom activities such as reading, writing, math and current affairs. Furthermore, clients engage in activities teaching and practicing important life skills and curriculum especially geared to adults with special needs such as personal hygiene, healthy shopping and meal preparation, cooking and cleaning skills, home safety, personal safety, etc.
