Bollinger Campus in Warren, PA

Supported Group Employment

Small Group Employment Services provides support to individuals who are making the transition to integrated, competitive employment in the community. In this program, participants temporarily work in small groups or enclaves supervised by a training/job supervisor. The goal of the service is building skills to help the adult move into community integrated employment with one of the local companies/businesses.

Participants receive an initial assessment that gauges current skills and leads to the development of a plan based on the individual’s abilities and preferences.

Through their work experiences, individuals focus on developing “hard skills” to accomplish the specific tasks associated with their job duties. They also work on “soft skills” that will help them be successful in community employment, such as socialization, appropriate appearance and hygiene, response to supervision and other workplace behaviors.

Each participant receives training customized to meet their unique needs and schedules are arranged so that individuals can do work that is of interest to them.

Through Small Group Employment, Bollinger provides janitorial services for several local organizations and businesses. Current customers include:

Bollinger also acquired the ANF service contract under a federal set-aside program through SourceAmerica, formerly the National Industries for the Severely Handicapped (NISH).
