Exploring the Modern Workplace with Vocational Rehabilitation 

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) helps people with physical, psychiatric, and learning disabilities find and keep a job. VR empowers you to explore college, vocational training, and connects you to fulfilling employment opportunities.

  • VR is a great option if your career goal requires a two- or four-year degree.
  • MRC collaborates with public colleges and universities, professional training programs, and employers statewide, to partner with people with disabilities to expand what’s possible in their career and work life.
  • VR counselors work to offer you counseling and guidance, job-driven training and skills training, aptitude testing, job placement assistance, college or vocational training, assistive technology, financial wellness, employer consultation, and so much more.
