The Arc of Monroe offers several Employment Readiness Services that provide various hands-on educational opportunities to prepare people with I/DD for competitive/community employment.

Monroe Community College (MCC) Experience is a higher education transitional service that prepares participants for eventual community employment. People learn relevant, marketable employment skills and acquire vocational internship and volunteer experience in various departments on and off MCC campus.

MCC Experience is located at MCC’s beautiful and new Downtown Campus. The campus offers opportunities to gather, socialize, learn, and experience many facets of college life. With their student IDs, participants can enjoy all of the campus amenities, clubs, and social events.
