Coordinated Career Pathways (CCP) Services

Coordinated Career Pathways (CCP) is a new service designed for individuals exiting work activity programs, subminimum wage settings, or within two years of exiting secondary education to achieve or advance in competitive Integrated employment (CIE). Two new services are available through CCP, a Career Pathway Navigator (CPN) and a Customized Employment Specialist (CES). Services are time-limited to 18 months but can be extended to a maximum of 24 months.

Career Pathway Navigator

All individuals using this service will first develop a Person-Centered Career Plan (PCCP) with a Career Pathway Navigator (CPN). The plan includes the individuals career goal or interests, strengths, challenges and barriers, regional center and generic services and supports, short term milestones, action steps, and timeline.  The CPN will provide direct assistance in the implementation of the plan including, guidance and information, and direct assistance accessing regional center and generic services. Monthly monitoring of progress occurs, allowing for necessary adjustments to be made to the PCCP as required.

The PCCP may include, but is not limited to, the following activities and services:

  • career exploration
  • community engagement and integration
  • postsecondary education, vocational training
  • internships and or other work experiences (volunteering, temporary work, part time paid work)
  • supported employment (job preparation, search, placement, coaching)
  • customized employment
  • technology assistance
  • self-employment or microbusiness launch
  • benefits education and analysis (SSI, food assistance, housing)
  • transportation
  • financial empowerment and savings

Customized Employment Specialist

The recommendation for CE services and/or other RC services to meet individual needs to achieve CIE will be a part of the Person-Centered Career Plan.

Customized Employment (CE) is an employment service that is designed for any person who wants to work, regardless of the severity of their disability, limited exposure to community and work experience, or support needs. CE is carried out through discovery, job search planning, job development and negotiation, placement support and post-employment support. CE results in CIE through a customized, negotiated job that matches the interests, skills, abilities, and work conditions of the individual to the business needs of an employer.
