Vocational Services at Progressive Achievement Centers

Our Mission

At the Progressive Achievement Center, we teach each consumer socially valued marketable job skills and behaviors that mirror community standards, with a goal of greater independence for each consumer served.

Benefits of Our Services

Employers who hire individuals with disabilities receive real benefits. The Progressive Achievement Center program can provide a company or business with a competent labor force, which can minimize problems with stability and attendance. Hiring an individual with a disability can also generate a positive public image for employers. Employers will gain experience in working with non-traditional work forces, in order to better cope with labor-short economics.

What is PAC?

VOCATIONAL-PAC-shreddingThe Progressive Achievement Center (PAC) program is an adult vocational training service that is designed to promote independence and provide individualized instruction in the areas that relate to employment.

The PAC offers individuals an opportunity to use acquired vocational skills and training to meet the needs of employers throughout the community.

The individuals who work in the PAC program have an expansive array of skills and abilities, which allow them to make substantial contributions to both large and small businesses and companies.

The PAC program is part of SERV Achievement Centers, an affiliate of SERV Behavioral Health System Inc., which serves individuals of all ages who have emotional, behavioral and developmental disabilities.

What PAC can do for you

We perform various jobs at cost-effective rates, which include, but are not limited to, administrative support, janitorial services and general labor.

Jobs are completed in the following service delivery models:

Individual Placement: Locates a community-based job for a specific individual with a disability. A PAC Employment Trainer provides initial training and ongoing support at the job site.

Group Placement: Uses a full-time supervisor and a small group of individuals with disabilities, in an industry or corporation, where they can work in an integrated setting. The supervisor and/or supported employees may be employed by the industry itself, or by the PAC program.

Mobile Crew: Uses a full-time supervisor and a small group of individuals with disabilities, who travel together to multiple work sites in the community where they engage in volunteer and contractual work.

In-House Contracts: Locates subcontracted work from a community business or organization, to be completed at a price per unit or in some cases work is completed on a volunteer basis.

Volunteer: Provides services or duties for which an individual is not paid.
