Exciting Changes in the Community Employment Network (CEN) Department!
SEEC Departments Realign According to Strategic Plan
SEEC’s new strategic plan guides us in reevaluating our approach to support services through a fresh lens—ensuring our offerings are both holistic and reciprocal. SEEC’s departments and programs are currently in the process of realigning to achieve these goals. The Community Employment Network (CEN) department will be growing to advance our strategic vision and help us meet our agency goals. Further, SEEC is excited to announce that following a nationwide search, Sherry Beamer will step into the leadership position of the newly expanded CEN department. Ms. Beamer will begin her tenure at SEEC after Labor Day. Stay tuned for opportunities in the near future to learn more about Sherry.
Over the next several months, the Community Employment Network (CEN) department will restructure to provide a cohesive menu of supports with three program service lines. Project SEARCH will be led by Nancy Eaby and become a part of CEN, allowing interns a smooth transition from learning to job search to employment. Employment Services, led by Michael Petrick, will operate under the CEN department by continuing to focus on discovery, job development, customized employment, ongoing job support, and employment retention. Lastly, the traditional CEN approach combining work readiness, community involvement, and self-discovery will be renamed the Community Engagement program. We are excited to welcome Shari Carver to SEEC as a the lead in this program area.
