These are the support and services given to a youth who is experiencing psychiatric, emotional, social, and developmental or substance use difficulties who needs continuous support in order to obtain and maintain a job in an integrated workplace or self-employment.


​​​​Unlike prevocational services which prepare a youth for the working world, supported employment services are given to youths who are actively seeking employment or are already employed but need ongoing support in order to retain the job.

Service components:

  • Job scouting, placement, and training
  • Job planning and development
  • Job coaching
  • Interfacing with prospective employers and supervisors on needed accommodations based on youth’s health and developmental abilities
  • Navigation and transportation
