DVR can provide services to qualified Youths as well through the local SWAP (School-to-Work-Alliance Program). The School to Work Alliance Program (SWAP) is designed to provide employment-related assistance to students and young adults with disabilities, who are experiencing mild to moderate barriers to employment. Disabilities can take the form of physical, emotional or learning disabilities.
SWAP provides assistance that not only produces a desirable employment outcome such as a career-path job, but also teaches appropriate job seeking and job retention skills that can be utilized throughout a lifetime. Through our partnership with SWAP and the Larimer County Work-Based Learning Alliance, several of our younger clients are eligible to participate with a multitude of work-based learning activities, such as paid work experiences, on-the-job training, apprenticeships and others.
If you are an employer looking to get connected with DVR for more information on any of our Business Services, please contact Shanae Core, your local Business Outreach Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
