Career Planning & Consultation

Peckham’s Career Planning and Consultation (CPC) program is designed to offer a variety of career assessment, planning and exploration services to individuals facing barriers to employment. Persons referred may present employment challenges including, but not limited to, physical, cognitive, emotional and economic concerns. During the CPC process, individuals will learn about their vocational strengths and abilities and how to enter or rejoin the workforce. With each client we develop an individualized plan,and identify objectives and methods for obtaining goals.
