At some point during a person's life, a crisis may happen that greatly affects that individual's home life, education and career. Here, at California Clubhouse, there are different programs catered to the individual's needs to help them get back to work.k.
Career Development Information
We offer resources for local schools, both academic and vocational. Also, we connect colleagues to educational opportunities in the greater community, such as webinars by various organizations and peer counseling classes held by Caminar. Because our education and employment programs work hand in hand, we also support training for vocational courses such as Food Handler certification. Clubhouse is a place where individuals can learn by doing!
The Career Development Program hosts Job Club and Job Search, weekly online meetings that focus on skills such as finding job postings, sending business emails, learning interview etiquette, and building resumes. The program also hosts monthly Student Soiree/Employment Dinners tailored to members currently employed or looking for employment.
- Support with Resume and Cover Letter
- Support with Job Search and Mock Interviews
- Meet with Employment Coordinator as resource
- Work with peers for support and guidance
Our Student Soiree/Employment Dinner is a complimentary dinner for members to enjoy as they catch up with each other regarding work. The dinner usually has a set topic and speaker. Dinners are hosted one evening a month. We currently hold this virtually.
Transitional Employment Program
Transitional Employment is a right of membership that provides opportunities for members to work on supported job placements in the community. The desire to work is the single most crucial factor in determining placement opportunity.
The placements are part-time (15-20 hours) and are between 6 to 9 months in duration at the employer's place of business.
"Transitional Employment is the most kind way of getting back into the work force knowing someone is there for you with encouragement and a forward focus" -Ann
Independent Employment is either full-time or part-time whereas the member seeks employment on their own without the assistance of the clubhouse. The Clubhouse assists with career development should the member need it.
In Supported Employment, the Clubhouse supports the member in their job search. Whether it be helping the member create a resume or researching prospective employers, job development, job coaching, mock interviewing the member in their career endeavors.
