The Supported Employment Program is the most important aspect of our curriculum as it offers on the job coaching and support to our trainees and provides peace of mind for the business owner. D'Vine Path will provide a trained Job Coach until the trainees are proficient enough to be independent. We don't want to just provide employment opportunities, we want to provide successful and long-term employment partnerships between businesses and trainees.
Students who complete Session1 and 2 Viticulture and Hospitality Program will have the opportunity to become a trainee with a Job Coach at a local business.
To promote diversity and inclusion, trainees receive work experience in integrated training environments that include both persons with and without disabilities. Trainees have both service-related and non-service related social interaction with people who have typical development.
As an example, Batali Ranch has offered unsubsidized employment to four former participants of a partnering work program resulting in the hiring of two part-time employees; demonstrating the success of the program strategies and commitment to increasing employment opportunities for people with special needs. The newly hired employees work in an integrated environment. Inclusion benefits both the employees with developmental and/or learning disabilities and typical development in that it teaches them new perspectives and communication strategies, strengthens team work, and increases customer service skills by expanding understanding of different customer needs. Participants are engaged in work and social environments that include employees and community members from diverse backgrounds, religions, race, age, and gender.
