  • Overview

    In the absence of the full-time employee, Substitutes are asked to assist in the direction and supervision of a group of adults with developmental disabilities in adult activities centers and/or in one or more of our entrepreneurial ventures including retail settings. Heavy lifting may be required at times, and Substitutes are expected to abide by work rules and procedures established by the Cuyahoga County Board of DD. 


    Unusual working conditions:  Substitutes may be asked to work flexible hours, and depending on the assignment, they may be asked to work some weekends and some holidays.  Although our Adult Activities Centers are closed in the evening, weekends, and on holidays, we do have some entrepreneurial ventures that are open evenings, weekends, and some holidays.  Please note that Substitutes work intermittent hours, and are considered at-will employees.  There is no guarantee of work as a substitute because the need for substitutes depends of the level of absenteeism of our permanent staff.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR YAHOO, AOL, AND VERIZON EMAIL USERS: If you are using Yahoo email or one of its affiliates, such as AOL or Verizon, it is highly recommended that you change your email address before applying for a position because Yahoo email servers are routinely rejecting emails from online applicant systems.  Online applicant systems, like ours, send automatic emails to confirm receipt of your application, and we send out status updates.  We also reach out to candidates by email through our applicant system.  Since email is the preferred way to contact applicants, we wanted you to be aware of the issues Yahoo is having with most online applicant systems. If you are never getting feedback from online applications, it could be because of the Yahoo server issues. If you are using Yahoo or one of the above affiliated email accounts, our emails to you will most likely bounce back to us as undeliverable.  Due to the large volume of candidates that we receive, we cannot follow-up on bounced emails.   Thank you.
