We may have a long and distinguished history as a sheltered workshop, but we are so much more. Every day we impact the lives of people with disabilities by creating real opportunities for meaningful work. Every day we see the skill, passion, motivation, and heart they bring to the job. We know adults with disabilities can contribute to productive business organizations, and we have a plan to get them there, if they so choose.
THE EMPLOYMENT CONTINUUM
Our employment continuum reflects our knowledge that every person has his or her own unique abilities—and that every person can contribute.
The continuum contains unique programs to serve individual goals. It also focuses on full employment and provides ongoing support so people may gain access to the employment of their choice and ability. Through continuous evaluation and skill development, they may move into any number of employment opportunities. Using our skills and expertise to support people with disabilities who want to work, there is no better phrase for us to hear than, “They’re hired!”
BCI’s Organizational Employment Services Program offers paid jobs in a supported environment with continuous opportunities to advance. Organizational employees work on location at BCI in St. Peters or Lincoln County with our Employment Support Specialists. Doing business as BCI Packaging, our whole team takes great pride in seeing the goods we have packaged on the store shelves.
BCI’s Competitive Employment Services Program connects people to area jobs where they earn the same pay, benefits, and responsibilities as non-disabled team members. Working at these companies allows them to showcase their capabilities, character, and commitment to excellence! We work with our clients to create goals, ready skills, and seek opportunities. Once employment is secured, we remain available for follow-up support as needed.
The BCI Skills Center is a first-of-its-kind vocational training facility for adults with disabilities. The Skills Center offers three programs—Salesforce, Manufacturing, and Hospitality Housekeeping. We partner with forward-thinking businesses and employers to create exact curriculums. We also teach in replica work settings to provide hands-on learning. Once training is complete, students move straight into the workforce.
