The Disability Resources Department of Santa Rosa Junior College is seeking a qualified individual with demonstrated clerical and customer service skills to join an outstanding team of faculty and staff to provide high quality services to our district, our community, and most importantly to our students. This position is a part-time, 12 months per year, categorically funded Classified position. Hours of employment will be 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday, through Thursday. Candidates must have scheduling flexibility to meet the changing needs of the department. Appointments are contingent upon funding and Board approval.
The C2C Program is a Cooperative Contract Program with the California Department of Rehabilitation designed to provide educational and vocational support and training for students with intellectual disabilities. This is a program designed to serve 60 students per year. Funding through June 2014 is secured, however funding for future cycles is dependent on the ability of the C2C program to show measured success in securing long term employment for program participants. All C2C students will at minimum be enrolled 50% of the time in courses or work settings with their non-disabled peers. It should be noted that while the C2C is a program that is inclusive in nature, it is also designed to meet the unique needs and challenges of students with intellectual disabilities both in post secondary education and the workforce. For some students, ongoing vocational support may be critical to continued success in the workplace; while years one and two develop the skills needed to work and thrive in the community, year three of C2C will focus on employment in the community as well as assist students in connecting with local agencies that can provide ongoing support.
