What is Voyager?
Voyager is a 1:1 employment service. Voyager gives individuals with diverse abilities more flexibility than a structured program. Each client in Voyager is offered the same support regarding employment as the participants in Bladerunners/WEST.
Who can take Voyager?
Voyager is for individuals who have been diagnosed with or self-identify as a person with diverse abilities (includes physical disabilities, anxiety, autism spectrum, ADHD, FASD, hearing impairment, etc.)
Do I have to be a part of the Criminal Justice System to be a part of Voyager?
No, while JHS is known for criminal justice work, it does not limit out client base to those who are currently or have a history with the criminal justice system.
