The Arc offers various vocational opportunities for people with disabilities.

Welcome to Employment Services

Employment Services works with individuals with disabilities preparing them for employment and assisting them with their job search so they are able to become contributing members of their local community.

Our programs are supported by New York State Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR), the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), Office of Mental Health (OMH) and Oneida County Workforce Investment Board (WIB). We are a partner in Working Solutions Utica One Stop Career Center and an active member of New York State Rehabilitation Association (NYSRA).

If you are an individual or parent looking for vocational services, we have many career paths to choose from. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss our programs. If you are a business interested in hiring an individual from one of our programs, we have various incentives we can talk with you about. More than 100 employers in Oneida and Lewis Counties hire individuals we support, with remarkable results. Hiring individuals with disabilities increases diversity and makes good business sense.
