BAC’s newest program is designed to offer individuals with differing abilities who have a strong interest in transitioning into community employment the chance to achieve their goals through this multidisciplinary, structured program.

Through individualized goal setting and training, participants are taught skills in high demand industries like hospitality, retail and light manufacturing in-house via work “pods” designed to mimic the actual work setting. To ensure that hard and soft skills necessary to work in a particular employment environment are taught accurately and appropriately, an Industry Advisory Council (IAC) consisting of industry leaders throughout the community also is a part of the program.

Currently, those serving on the IAC are:

Thomas Charland, Harris Corporation
Scott Ellis, Brevard County Clerk of Courts
Sheryl Cost, CareerSource-Brevard
Puneet Kapur, Holiday Inn Express-Palm Bay
Mark Phillips, Five Guys Burgers & Fries-Merritt Island
Mike Klenotich, Winn Dixie-Palm Bay
Laura Sidoran, Eastern Florida State College

Industry leaders interested in joining the IAC can contact Mike Murphy
