Many of our participants have struggled to maintain meaningful employment. The result is often withdrawal or apathy that ultimately leads to inaction. Brightstone uses an action–oriented approach that allows the participant to learn interviewing skills and apply those skills in real world situations. We, at Brightstone, believe that employment creates fulfillment and purpose. Upon completion of the Brightstone program, clients are prepared to obtain and maintain employment. We seek to establish a close connection with area employers which allows us to effectively communicate with supervisors, track progress, and address areas of concern.
Brightstone Transitions participants are expected to obtain and maintain employment. Through life skills curriculum, young adults learn job procurement skills, resume writing, and job application and interviewing skills. The Brightstone staff works with each student individually in order to find an appropriate job placement that meets his/her needs and interests. Staff will monitor work attendance and performance as needed. Students participate in community service and/or volunteer at local establishments prior to obtaining employment.
