In an effort to help people with disabilities find jobs in the public workforce, MCAR’s Community Employment
program partners with local businesses to offer on-site job internships. These internships are a way for
individuals to gain real-world experiences before looking for a job in the community.
On-site internships build job skills that may lead to a paid job with the local business. In addition, these
internships raise the awareness and understanding of business owners that people with special needs are capable and
MCAR has partnerships with local businesses, including local pharmacy stores, an office supply and book store,
hospital, and other businesses. Interning at one of these businesses helps a person with disabilities realize that
having a paid job in the community can be real.
