We are proud to work with Saratoga Bridges, the premier community resource for people with disabilities and their families.
Saratoga Bridges Prevocational Program offers individuals the opportunity to gain employment readiness skills. Their objective is to prepare people for competitive employment by incorporating actual work skills, vocational exploration and exposure to area employers. The agency strives to engage individuals to become productive, responsible and participating member of the community by helping them acquire vocational skills that promote optimum levels of independence in the workplace. They partner with businesses to offer opportunities to learn good work skills while promoting self-worth through paid work as well as advancement in wage, work habits, productivity and skill level. Individuals participate in paid work tasks that could lead to a referral to the Supported Employment Program and a job in the community. Individualized programs focus on work activities, vocational orientation and training and transitional employment. Ultimately, they believe that their role promotes and increases self-confidence, independence and quality of life.
The Lazy Dog Cookie Co Inc has been working with the Saratoga Bridges program for five years. We have an outstanding group of individuals that have mastered all aspects or our packaging. This is truly a rewarding program for everyone involved.
