Workability III

The WorkAbility III program empowers students with disabilities to obtain their employment goals by providing assistance with career exploration, vocational counseling, and employment preparation. The program is a collaboration between Los Rios Community College District and the California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR). We offer job seeking skills classes and workshops, vocational assessment, one-on-one career counseling, and job retention assistance. In order to participate in the program, you must be a consumer of the DOR. Call Rachel Stewart at (916) 558-2590 or inquire about the program with a DSPS counselor.
