Through the process of assessing, analyzing, and documenting the needs and desires of the individual receiving services, Revolution New Jersey provides programming that is mutually agreed upon by the individual and the people who help support them. Through these goals that are set, individuals will explore the following areas:
•Overview of being employed and the responsibilities therein
•Roles of individuals in the community
•Accessing the community resources available to them
•Identifying vocational interests through informed choice
•Locating and securing employment opportunities
•On-site training at the place of employment
•Community awareness training (safety, social skills, etc.)
•Participants must be at least 11 years old
Finding vocational assessments that actually address the needs of the individual and offer practical recommendations used to be impossible! Our assessments offer the following:
•Two to three days of evaluation
•Observations at actual jobsites
•An easy to read and comprehensive report
Please call for more details on how to access this service.

Revolution New Jersey is proud to announce that as of February 2016, we expanded our transportation services and our fleet to do so. It is no secret that transportation has been and continues to be a weak link when attempting to put the pieces together for a successful, reliable day program for the individuals that we serve. This is an issue that needed to be addressed and that is what we did. As we always say here at Revolution New Jersey,
"Let's Get To Work." So that is what we did.
