Getting Participants Off to a Good Start

The goals of the orientation/assessment process are to:

  • Build rapport with participants
  • Explain what the Employment First Program has to offer them
  • Explain program options and mandatory requirements
  • Ensure participants understand the consequences of not following through with program requirements
  • Begin the process of identifying participants’ strengths, work history, skills, and employment barriers
  • Ensure that all ABAWD referrals understand the work requirement provisions
  • Determine the next step for the participant(s) in the program
