Families will receive a daily activity recap through email completed by the coach and participant. We believe communication is key!

CM provides 1:1 job coach support to those who have obtained employment and completed the internship program. Clear Motivations provides transportation and job coaching support throughout the participant’s work shift.
Our coaches don’t just stop at support, we make sure to help the participant go above and beyond to show their employer they are capable of moving up in the company. We’ve had many stories of participants earning a promotion at their job site. If for any reason there is no room for growth and the participant would like to move up in their field, we have coaches available for that kind of support. Our coaches will build a resume and conduct mock interviews with the participant to get them ready for that next step in their career.
