Welcome to the DSG HIRED Program
for 15-23 Year Olds with Down Syndrome!
HIRED was developed to help individuals with Down syndrome between 15-23 years of age realize their employment dreams! DSG works closely with businesses to set up opportunities for participants to be successful and learn skills necessary for keeping a job. See flier for more specific information. Sessions are offered in the summer and during the school year.
The next session of HIRED will be offered during the 2019-2020 School year. Specific dates and locations are coming soon. Classes will take place from 2:30-5:30pm one time per month. This will require individuals who are in school to miss the end of the school day should they choose to participate. In the past the schools have not minded as they realize the benefit of the program.
Participants will need to provide their own transportation. Transportation will be provided between the job site and the DSG office. If transportation is an issue please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to ride in the DSG van.
Each participant will be provided a 1-on-1 support (if needed) during the class to build skills.
