Get ready to work! A farm is the perfect place to learn how to work. Expand the skill set you offer employers by learning fundamental skills related to animal care, landscaping or horticultural jobs and improve critical social skills that help secure work in your area of interest.
Hope Farms Project is one of a growing number of organizations in Colorado preparing people with disabilities to work. But few organizations focus on careers in agriculture despite the fact that, according to the Colorado Rural Development Council, only ten out of 64 counties in Colorado are designated as urban. At Hope Farms Project, we give people the training they need to be gainfully employed in urban or rural areas which allows them to stay in their communities of choice and be productive citizens.
Explore your field of interest and work readiness in our situational assessment which is individualized and involves clarifying career goals, researching job descriptions and requirements and getting hand-on experience through job shadowing or practice in the field.
Our job seeking skills curriculum leads participants through the many steps of a job search from writing a resume and filling out applications to preparing for an interview to developing the professionalism needed to maintain employment. Job coaching is available.
Hope Farms is a vendor for the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
