LEAD Partner: Clarksville Montgomery County American Job Center
LEAD Center has been working in partnership with the Clarksville Montgomery County American Job Center (AJC) in Tennessee for the past two years. This comprehensive, accessible AJC has supported LEAD Center’s first Guided Group Discovery pilots for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Recently, the Clarksville AJC agreed to be LEAD Center’s first pilot for “Guided Group Discovery for Veterans.”
The Clarksville AJC offers a virtual AJC portal for electronic/remote access, along with individualized career services, training services, and business services. They also have services from many key partners, including Vocational Rehabilitation, TANF, Veterans Employment Services, Ticket to Work and Self Sufficiency, internships and work experiences, Job Clubs, Financial Literacy, SNAP Employment & Training, and more. The Clarksville AJC works in partnership with Vocational Rehabilitation to provide Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) to in-school youth with disabilities. They also provide special services for veterans through the Fort Campbell Soldier Transition Program and the Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow (LIFT) Operation Next Program, which helps soldiers who are soon to be discharged or recently discharged from the military.
