ICD prepares individuals to succeed in the workplace. With special emphasis on youth transitioning from school to the community, we provide practical soft skills instruction, explore a wide range of career options, and build self confidence.


This program prepares participants for long-term job success, and includes skills training in targeted career tracks such as:

  • Custodial
  • Food Prep
  • Office Supports
  • Retail/Customer Service

Additionally, ICD offers an After-School Work Readiness program to students who are still attending high school. With proper authorization, this service can be provided on site at select schools.

This training is well-aligned to help students earn their work based learning experiences needed for the new C-DOS Commencement Credential. Such services may be funded through ACCES-VR as well as private partnerships with community-based organizations, school districts or the Department of Education.
