Individuals in this program are supported through each step of the employment process with the goal of securing and maintaining employment. Sparc staff helps individuals develop and refine job skills that suit their personal strengths. A key component of this program is the Success Center, a place where individuals learn and practice vocational and social skills in mock work settings. Sparc job coaches support the individuals at job locations and work with employers.
The Job Placement Program has nearly 50 employers in the Springfield community that employ more than 60 individuals supported by Sparc.
These individuals work with a vocational specialist who assists with on-the-job training.
Job placement, with the assistance of our vocational specialists, has led to individuals “graduating” from the program and independently working on their own.
Sparc has been providing Springfield employers with trustworthy, inspired and hardworking individuals for more than 20 years.
