Group Transitional Employment

Group Transitional Employment is for members who are extremely fearful, cannot work without staff support, are extremely disabled, or need additional training before moving into transitional jobs. Green Door has developed these temporary on-the-job trainings in office settings, where members practice working at a job in a small group, alongside staff and other members for support.

Group Transitional Employment jobs are short-term (usually 3-10 days), special projects. Staff take a group of members to the employer’s place of business to complete special projects such as a large mailing. Members are paid for their work by the employer. This is a good starting point for some very fearful members, allowing them to learn to navigate the world of work. After members demonstrate their ability to work in a professional environment, they are able to move on to transitional or supported employment.
