Welcome to our team. Students assigned to this team will have the opportunity to explore different vocational experiences on the Menorah Park Campus for Senior Living, Montefiore Nursing Home, Ahuja Medical Center campus and TJ Maxx. Our team offers different levels of supports to the student interns as needed. This means that the
students, depending on their job assignments, will be assigned to a mentor
(a current employee) and will also be supervised by CEVEC staff ranging from
5% to 70% of their scheduled work shift.
The staff to student ratio varies between one staff to two students to one staff to nine students. Students have the opportunity to work in
several different areas on this team including maintenance, housekeeping,
food service, dish washing, laundry, customer service, and banquet set up.
Students also participate in work meetings that focus on the sixteen CEVEC Power Standards as well as social skills and transition activities throughout the school year. These lessons help to prepare the students to display professional vocabulary, behaviors and skills required to obtain and maintain employment in the community. Our team also assists students with travel training to help prepare them to be as independent as possible.
staff at this site has partnerships with the Opportunities for Ohioans with
Disabilities, Lake County, Geauga County and the Cuyahoga County Boards of Developmental Disabilities. These working relationships benefit the
students by assisting them to gain eligibility through the OEDI as well as to
secure employment in summer work programs and post school work options.
