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. 

2020 flier

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 julie@kcdsg.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.

$100 fee for all participants accepted into the program. (Those who have done the program before can still apply. Different material and new job sites available. 

 

Apply Here for January-May 2020!

December 2nd, 2019: Applications due
