Southern Tier Industries (STI), the vocational division of The Arc of Chemung, works with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to provide training and develop the necessary skills to find, and maintain, meaningful employment.
Diversify Your Workforce
Every employer has the potential to employ a person with a disability. We have a training and employment program that works with more than 30 local businesses in Chemung County who employ individuals with disabilities.
Assist in Customizing Jobs and Help You Make Reasonable Adjustments

This process assists both the employer and the employee to determine which individuals would be a good match for your job. We prescreen applicants to ensure workers have a definable job skill, proper motivation and the desire to excel in their employment.
