Children and youth

The Photo Center Program at Easterseals provides part-time employment for individuals with disabilities as Photo License Technicians (PLT). The PLTs work at Driver License Centers and are responsible for taking photos of customers and printing their new IDs or licenses. The job requires customer service experience and the ability to complete paperwork and maintain security.

Our staff typically work between 8 and 20 hours per week, receive a competative starting wage, and are granted salary increases upon completion of specific durations of service to acknowledge their continued commitment and performance. We offer multiple shifts including morning, afternoon, and all day.

The staff that work as Photo License Technicians enjoy their job tremendously. They are grateful to be employed in an environment where they feel they fit in, they do not have to hide their disability, they are offered accommodations, they are accepted by their coworkers, they are not judged, and they are encouraged
