The Next Step Employment Program

Thanks to a grant given by Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc., The Arc of Lincoln will be hosting a series of informational classes geared toward helping those with intellectual and developmental disabilities learn about what it takes to find meaningful employment.  “The Arc of Lincoln welcomes the opportunity to work with Goodwill to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities gain employment,” said Dick Longacre, former Executive Director of The Arc of Lincoln. “This program will be of great value to the families and individuals that The Arc serves.” Each class will have a different focus ranging from resume writing to community resources. The Arc of Lincoln will also offer individualized assistance with job searches as well as coordinate one on one meetings with job search experts and employers.
