The Java Joy Program Leaders will work with ESP's program Java Joy. Java Joy is a job skills training to empower adults with disabilities to gain confidence, learn job applicable skills, and advance their abilities. Java Joy is mobile coffee cart, employed by our adults with disabilities, and rented by local companies as a fee for service. Our adults, or “Joyristas,” prepare and serve coffee, baked goods, and transformative joy.
In fulfilling the objectives of Java Joy, the Java Joy Program Leaders will: create and implement job skills training for all Joyristas, encourage and assist all Java Joy members to find creative ways to appreciate and work with their disability, monitor individualized work plans and recreational goals for each Joyrista, serve as site managers of all Java Joy community events, ensure all work sites maintain a safe, clean, friendly environment for both Java Joy staff and community members, assist in the promotion of Java Joy, planning and implementing Java Joy events, and fulfilling the objectives of the program.
