Job Description

We live in communities that are full of exciting things to see and do. Vodec is committed to making sure each person we serve has a chance to explore them.

The ability to effectively communicate with people who may not be adept at communicating their thoughts or feelings is an asset. With that said, ask one of our team members, and they’ll tell you that those challenges are outnumbered by countless moments of joy that come from helping someone learn a new skill or have an exciting new experience. At every level, this team helps consumers gain knowledge and confidence in interpersonal relationships, daily living, nutrition, health and safety and, of course, access to community resources.

When we hire applicants for Day Services program, we look for mature, confident and compassionate people. We value problem solvers and potential employees who are calm in moments of crisis. If you’ve got what it takes to help plan and pull off a rich and rewarding Day Habilitation experience for a group of our consumers, we would love to hear from you!
