Path to Employment

Oregon high school students with intellectual and developmental disabilities now receive a career-development plan before leaving school. Until recently this was not usually the case. Older Associates received little in the way of employment orientation. Cornerstone has long been ahead of the curve by providing our Associates with opportunities to develop job skills through employment at one of our six diverse and independent businesses.

As a business owner, you can benefit from hiring our skilled Associates. Every business has a variety of functions and its own unique culture. We work with you to match our talented Associates to the specific need your company has. Finally we provide on-site, no-cost, on the job training to ease the transition.

Information for Businesses Looking for Employees

We provide job analyses and onsite training. Once an employee is hired we learn the job. Over time, as your new employee gains skills and confidence, they're able to function more independently and require less guidance. If you need us for any reason, including training updates at no cost to you, we'll be there.

These are the services we provide at no cost and the benefits for your business.
