Job Path Disability Job Coach in New York, New York
Job Path supports people with developmental disabilities as they make choices about their lives and play valued roles in their communities. Job Path encourages people to explore what they want out of life and to chart their own journeys. Whether it’s finding a job, making a contribution in a volunteer role, establishing a home, or being part of the community, the goal is to assist the person to lead a full and active life.
At Job Path, we use a Customized Employment (https://www.jobpathnyc.org/employment/) approach which entails getting to know the job seeker first and then using this knowledge to target employers based on the person’s interests, needs and skills. The aim is not to fit an individual into an already existing job description or opening. Instead, we work with employers to identify their needs and create or carve out a job that works for both the business and the job seeker.
Job Path is seeking applicants for the Job Coach position in our employment programs. The individualized supports we provide are integral to the job retention for the participants in our program. Job Coaches must be reliable and punctual; in order for the people we support to be successful in their jobs. Applicants must be energetic, responsible, and creative.
