Prevocational Services

The Arc of Rensselaer County provides pre-vocational services to people with intellectual disabilities that are interested in employment. Pre vocational supports help people develop the skills necessary to gain and maintain community employment. Currently, The Arc operates two work centers, Riverside North and Riverside South in Troy, NY where people learn valuable work skills while being employed producing products for local, regional, national and international customers. People receiving pre vocational supports often learn and practice employment skills in actual community setting on a paid or volunteer basis. Beginning July 1, 2013, all pre vocational supports for people not already attending Riverside will be delivered in community settings.

Testimonials and Success Stories

I have been working here at The Arc for almost a year now. I started out as a DSP in an IRA home and currently have moved into the position of Senior Lifestyle Specialist. Working with The Arc has been the biggest and best jump in my life. I have loved working hard and staying late for these wonderful people we support for one reason, a smile. One smile is all it takes to remind me why I do what I do.

–Walter T. Hatz, III, Senior Lifestyle Specialist
