Vocational Visions is excited to offer a Paid Internship Program where persons served obtain work experience interning with your business or organization for a set duration, ranging from three months to one year. Your business or organization does not pay the intern;  however, the intern is paid through a program funded by the State of California. Payroll is set up on the Vocational Visions end. The intern is paid an hourly wage commensurate with what any person with the same level of experience would be paid if your business/organization hired directly. The only payroll responsibilities your business/organization has is to have the intern's direct supervisor sign off on the intern's timesheet (provided by us) every two weeks.

The Paid Internship Program is exceptionally beneficially for all involved for multiple reasons:

1. The duration of the internship and work hours are flexible

2. Vocational Visions provides job coaching support at no charge to your business/organization to support the intern's success with the job responsibilities

3. The intern/persons served gains valuable work experience and receives a paycheck.

4. You get support for your business/organization at no payroll cost to you

5. You give back to an underserved population in the community

5. Any worker's comp issues that may arise will be handled through our internship program and not by you.

Direct Hire Opportunities:

Vocational Visions partners with businesses to obtain direct placement opportunities. We offer onsite job coaching to facilitate the success of our persons served. This coaching is at no cost to the employer or employee. Coaching can range from 20% to 100% of the time depending on the situation.

Paid Internship Program (PIP) Opportunities:

Vocational Visions partners with local businesses to offer opportunities for paid internships to persons served in our program. The goals of the paid internship program are for the person served to acquire work skills that may lead to a subsequent full-time or part-time competitive integrated employment position as a direct hire in the same job, or in a similar job with a business other than where the internship was completed. Vocational Visions will provide a one-to-one job coach at no cost to the employer to ensure the person served is successful. You get the benefit of extra help without having to add that person served to your payroll. We make sure the person served is paid. All you have to do is sign off on their timesheet. Workers’ compensation is covered by this program.

It’s a win-win-win-win opportunity for the person served, for your business and for the community. Customers also love to see these partnerships in action.

Vocational Visions partners with Regional Center of Orange County for this program.
