Job Readiness

During class, members learn job skills through sampling a variety of job roles, including running an e-commerce website. Office tasks are also taught such as taking inventory, filling orders, packing, shipping, mailing letters, attending business meetings off site, as well as the more traditional shredding, filing etc. The job coach mirrors skill sets from jobs in an attempt to find an appropriate volunteer or supported employment opportunity. Because of partnerships SNACK* has developed, some of these opportunities include volunteer jobs at St. Bartholomew’s Church’s Food Pantry and instructional supported employment at Columbia University.
