Center-Based Employment

Jobs and vocational services at a Rise location

Background Triangles

What is center-based

Our center-based employment strategies provide the opportunity for people to work at a Rise production location with the support of Rise staff.

This program might be a good fit for you if you are not interested in community employment or are unsure about your employment preferences, while still earning an income. In center-based employment, Rise provides extra levels of support and structure beyond what you would find in a community job.

We have center-based employment programs at our Spring Lake Park, Oakdale, and New Richmond locations.

Key Features

  • Work at a Rise location with the support of Rise staff
