Prevocational Training

The Friends of Cyrus prevocational program provides key learning  experiences designed to prepare our individuals for paid employment and volunteer work opportunities. We focus on the individuality of each participant, assessing personal interests, level of preparedness, and overall strengths. While formal prevocational training takes place in the community, our passionate staff also convey general workplace knowledge in our day habilitation program.
