Insite: The Work Connection
Wrapping up the work week by highlighting Sara, who is pictured here working on a heat sealing machine. This is one of VARCs jobs that requires a higher skillset. Clients have the opportunity to begin by working on simple, single-step tasks, and as they advance their skills, are provided opportunities to work on more complex equipment. Sara does a great job keeping up the necessary pace to operate this machine, and is preparing herself for when she is ready to obtain work outside of VARC. 
Prevocational services offers clients the opportunity to develop their work skills at their own pace, with supportive staff that assist them as much or as little as necessary in order to ensure they can be as best prepared as possible for when they are ready to begin searching for other employment opportunities.

Skills Enrichment clients are enjoying using the parachute as part of large motor activity time at VARC. This is a common activity used to increase coordination, and is used as an exercise activity for some of our participants. 
(Its also a tad fun. 😊) 
This, and other large motor and exercise activities are an essential part of our day service, and can help keep participants both physically and cognitively active.
