Community Partnerships

Blue Sky staff appreciate our community partners for making the world more inclusive, diverse and hopeful for people of all abilities.

Because of their support through volunteering opportunities, business tours, special presentations, job shadowing and integrated employment, our consumers are aware that they have a caring network beyond parents, guardians or staff members in the place that they live.


Volunteer Experiences

Job seekers put these skills to practical use by volunteering in the community  before gaining employment. A Blue Sky Job Coach is there to give feedback and reinforcement as our job seeker performs tasks in an environment similar to a job site.

Supported Employment

Once employed we provide on-the-job supports and job coaching to help the employee meet the expectations of the employer, adapting our coaching when appropriate.
