Discover animal related jobs opportunities where you will succeed by collaborating with an occupational therapist to identify strengths, needs, and work task adaptations for individuals of all abilities.
Take the first step to a meaningful job with animals: use our working dog and horse facility to discover or improve skills doing what you love to do!
Why the Program Began:
TTL recognized the need for a vocational program when we attempted to hire an individual to help with our horse program. During the first interview at the farm, it became clear that the applicant was excited to work, but lacked the endurance, coordination, and safety awareness to handle TTL’s horses and client. TTL collaborated with local animal jobs and disability support services to develop a customized curriculum with outcome measures focused on exploring animal and farm related vocations, building employable skills, and transitioning into successful employment.
Who Do We Serve:
Taking The Lead, Inc. offers training for individuals of all abilities wanting to work with animals. Some of our students require more intensive supports while others simply need the experience working with dogs in order to explore a career opportunity and gain skills to be competitive job applicants. Each course has been developed based on the needs of the students and we look forward to customizing the programs to continue to meet the needs of your child or adult!
