Work on a Supported Team

We Are Employee Creators

Supported Employment Teams (SETs) are community jobs at an area company, where you work with an Opportunity Partners coach and other team members. Whether you have just graduated from a school transition program or are seeking a new challenge, finding a job doesn’t have to be an independent pursuit.

Learn While You Earn

SETs make it possible for you to become a skilled, wage-earning member of the community. We promote an individualized approach where you can build talents and advance your abilities as part of a supervised team. You can explore a variety of community job sites, from corporate cafeterias to office administration, while gaining experience and confidence that can lead to independent employment.

New Opportunities

When you start on a SET, you will have the support of your OP staff member and your peers, making this a great opportunity for you to try new jobs, develop skills and explore what type of work you like best. The future is bright when you are surrounded by people who are cheering you on!

People here are really nice. I have learned how to work some of the machines, the stitcher is my favorite. I am always asked to work in different areas, I like learning different jobs. I would like to work at ABC Millwork independently, I’m sure that will happen.
