Mission

 

The Mission of Work Training Center, Inc. is to assist and support people with disabilities to enhance the quality of their lives through increased independence in work and leisure activities. The Work Training Center is proud to support our clients in their goals to lead more independent lives.

Put Us To Work

Since 1960, the Work Training Center in Chico, California, has been providing training and jobs to adults with developmental disabilities. While to the outside world, it may seem like these disabilities would impede a quality product, we have created step-by-step processes that are aligned with an individual’s specific skills. Even physical limitations are taken into account by incorporating special accommodations that ensure everyone who wants to work here can do so. It is our mission to include everyone in the creation process of a quality product.

If you are interested in supporting our mission, please give us a call and put us to work.

Work Programs

Our Work Programs represent an intermediary step between vocational training and the individual placement program. The Work Programs include a great number of small supported groups as well as larger work teams based in production centers.  Unlike individual placement, the Job Coach provides ongoing support and training.

Our Work Programs operate like most other businesses in that they are measured by the quality of the product, professional customer service, and profitability. Testimonials and repeat customers attest to the success of these programs. By partnering with us, you keep jobs local and help contribute to the overall economic development of Butte County. To use our services,  call our corporate office at(530) 343-7994 and request a tour of our facilities, where you’ll have the chance to meet each business unit manager and discuss their capabilities.

Feather River Industries

Feather River Industries (FRI) in Oroville is a commercial woodshop production division that manufactures specialty shipping crates, pallets, gift boxes, and a wide assortment of custom wood products. FRI contracts with a variety of businesses locally and throughout California. Trainees will learn how to operate a variety of industrial woodshop power & hand tools in the completion of wood product contracts. Trainees must be able to regularly stand, twist, walk, bend and do some lifting. Trainees must have the ability to use their hands, and reach with their hands and arms; demonstrate manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination; and perform simple grasping and fine manipulation. FRI woodworker trainees receive pay based on individual productivity at the prevailing wage regulated by the Dept. of Labor.

Located in Oroville, Feather River Industries is a full-service wood shop serving California wholesale food growers and vineyards that rely on our custom wood presentation boxes for in-store or catalog product presentation. Our master carpenter staff provides guidance in this vocational training program to individuals interested in wood finishing. Raw materials are often sourced from recycled wood that is then re-planed and fashioned into an array of products. Many of our projects start at Feather River Industries and then progress through Bear Mountain Productions or Feather River Opportunity Center for kitting and shrink-wrapping before being shipped back to the customer. Feather River Industries is currently developing a secondary line of products that will be marketed to consumers, including some children’s furniture and learning tools for pre-schools.
