EAC Network Professional Development
EAC Network takes great pride in hiring the most competent, experienced, educated, and motivated staff to work in our programs. In order to make sure that the staff we hire remain current in their skills and enhance their professional expertise, EAC Network is committed to providing quality staff training whenever possible.
EAC Network implemented a New York State Department of Labor “Building Skills” grant to provide superior training to staff in our Long Island and NYC programs. Training provided included (but not limited to):
- Conflict Resolution
- Mandated Reporter
- Team Building
- Grant Writing
- Time Management
- Computer applications (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
- Dealing with the Special Needs Clients
- Supervisory Skills
EAC Network has continued to develop training since then. For instance, all Directors, Supervisors, and Vocational program staff complete agency training on the “Hiring Process.” This training offers up-to-date information on how to best prepare managers for the process of interviewing and hiring new staff and assists vocational program staff on how to effectively prepare their program participants for employment. Training is offered on-site at multiple program locations to accommodate staff and minimize disruption of program services.
Interns and Volunteers
Interns and volunteers are an important part of the EAC Network family. Each year, dozens of students from area colleges and universities assist in case management and service provision to the more than 71,000 people we serve each year. Over 400 ongoing community volunteers deliver meals to home-bound seniors, monitor children in foster care, become mentors for children, mediate disputes between neighbors, arbitrate auto lemon-law cases, give relief to people caring for frail elderly family members, and more.
