Rehabilitative Vocational Support Center

Occupational Rehabilitation

The Summit Institute's Vocational Support Center guides participants’ job searches, supports them throughout employment, schooling, and job training, and operates the Yetzir Kapayim supportive factory - which aids participants to explore their employment prospects and earning potential while developing vocational skills. Participants arrive at Summit’s Rehabilitative Vocational Support Center both from the Summit Institute’s therapeutic communities as well as from all over the Jerusalem area.

"יציר כפיים". מקבלי השירות התעסוקתי עוברים תהליך אבחון ושיקום הכולל פיתוח מיומנויות תעסוקתיות וכן מקבלים ליווי בהשמה בעבודה ו/או בלימודים ותמיכה בהשתלבות ובהתמדה במסגרת שבחרו. אנו מלווים משתקמים מקהילת המשתקמים של מכון סאמיט וכן ממקומות נוספים בירושלים.



The Challenges of Vocational Rehabilitation:

      • Functioning in a work environment – providing quality work through focus, creativity, high-quality efforts, responsibility, and initiative

      • Interpersonal relations in the work environment – building and maintaining appropriate workplace relationships.

      • Self-identity as a member of the workforce – creating a positive, realistic self-image as a productive member of the open job market.

    The principles of the rehabilitation process in employment
    The Summit Institute’s employment program focuses on making gradual progress
    at the right pace for each individual participant
    We believe gradual, supported steps that incorporate the abilities and motivation levels of each participant are
    important for making progress toward productive, satisfying employment.

    In order to succeed in the workforce, participants must fulfill
    the following criteria:

        • Motivation to be employed

        • Willingness to accept the idea of rehabilitative therapy at work

        • A commitment to work diligently

        • A commitment to aim for high-quality results

        • A commitment to appropriate workplace behavior

        • Understanding, internalizing and accepting basic conditions such as: salary, vacation and permanent work.

        • Alongside all of these, the right to fair and respectful treatment in the workplace is, of course, arbitrary and exists.

      Application and Acceptance to the Supported Employment Program
      Candidates are able to apply to the Supported Employment Program through a number of channels: local mental health
      clinics, private therapists, or independently. The application requires previous approval from the relevant funding organization,
