Employment Program

The Café Sunflower training program provides job training and work experience for young adults with learning differences. The goal of the program is to prepare young adults for jobs working in ‘front of the house’ environments. This is a 9-month program.

Employment Program

Months 0-3 are comprised of structured, on-the-job training and employee development which includes customer service, work ethic & attitude, communication, time management, goal-setting, problem solving, efficiency & productivity, responsibility & honesty, success & setbacks.

Months 4-9 are spent working and improving on the skills and knowledge learned during training.

During months 7-9, employment continues as we work with employees on their resume and job search skills, helping to put them on the path to employment.

  • They complete the program with a certificate of completion, resume, references, and checklist of skills.
  • The Sunflower team also convenes a meeting with the employee, family, service provider and Café Manager to discuss and review the types of jobs that match their skills and abilities.

After the program is completed, employees work with their service provider and/or families to look for a job.
