This year the BCSS Wood-Ridge Rehab program is focusing on vocational skills training through work enclaves. Over the past several months, our Job Readiness Instructor JoAnne Kuhl has set up two enclave sites specifically for Wood-Ridge adults. Each adult will be offered the opportunity to participate in work enclaves.

An enclave site is a community based work opportunity for a small group of adults supervised by a BCSS staff member. A work enclave is significant step away from our previous sheltered workshop experience. Although some of the work tasks performed in the community may have similar components or mechanics, the enclave opportunity highlights real world learning in settings with individuals with and without disabilities. Established enclave sites: Wood-Ridge Library and TJ Max

Recently, Manager, Mary Anne Johnson has been working with JoAnne to take over a number of volunteer sites and provide supports to adults placed in these opportunities. Mary Anne will also be developing additional opportunities for adults to participate in work enclaves.
