Rogers County Training Center (RCTC) has over 50 years of successful center-based employment programs that provide work experience for approximately 40 people with developmental disabilities. Blended vocational training and job opportunities are in an industrial setting. The goal of RCTC is to give its employees the opportunity to earn real wages for real work. The development of work-readiness skills such as attention to task and development of appropriate motor skills may be part of the services provided.
Founded in 1963 by a group of friends and family who wanted their children with special needs to work as independently as possible, RCTC has grown into a valuable resource designed to meet the employment needs of people with developmental and physical disabilities.
RCTC provides vocational opportunities for people with developmental and other disabilities while also providing area businesses with valuable labor, either on a permanent or intermittent basis.
RCTC operates two resale shops, Centsible Spending, in Claremore and in Pryor. These shops currently provide employment for eight people with disabilities as well as three job coaches. The shops operate solely on donated goods such as household items, books, clothing, toys, tools, sporting goods and furniture. Donations are accepted at both locations and are tax deductible.
RCTC staff and clients operate a recycling program on RCTC property at 2112 E. L. Anderson Blvd. in Claremore. We also staff the City of Claremore recycle depot which is a joint venture between RCTC, the City of Claremore and the Metropolitan Environmental Trust of Tulsa. This location is on City property at 810 Ramm Road in Claremore.
RCTC provides janitorial services at several businesses in Claremore and runs a recycle pick-up route for cardboard and paper for 26 businesses in the Claremore Metro Area. Our main building houses a workshop where we perform light industrial assembly and processing, a document shredding and a recycle shipping business.
