Prevocational Services

Individuals interested in prevocational training are looking to gain learning and work or volunteer experience so that they can develop general, non-job-task specific strengths, and skills that contribute to employability in paid employment in integrated community settings.

CAU’s approach is to include the following skills that are taught and developed through pre-vocational training:

  • Effective communication
  • Time management
  • Job application instruction
  • Boundaries
  • Interview skills
  • How to choose appropriate work clothing
  • How to utilize appropriate adaptive equipment
  • Workplace do’s and don’ts
  • Computer skills
  • Resume writing
  • Career planning
  • Stress Management

These skills may be taught through volunteer opportunities or job club.


Prevocational training is also a service that may be utilized by individuals receiving service through DVRS. For more information on those program specifications, click here.
