 Peacehaven began piloting a job-preparedness program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the summer of 2019. This job program, formerly known as Julian & Friends, has now blossomed into RISE (Reaching Interdependence, Skills, & Employment). RISE is an educational & training program designed to help adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) gain employment.
Adults with I/DD searching for a job face an 85 percent unemployment rate, despite their desire and ability to work. R.I.S.E. endeavors to change that by endowing participants with work skills that can be used in a variety of job settings.

  • Recall key concepts & definitions for general work practices, agricultural content & procedures, and communication skills (Competence)
