About the program

The Bridge to Success (BTS) program provides an alternative route towards County employment for qualified individuals with developmental disabilities.

Under the Bridge to Success program, individuals with developmental disabilities can enter the County employment workforce without going through the competitive merit process which consists of successfully passing an examination and placement on an eligible list.

BTS qualifying positions are non-Merit System positions within Contra Costa County.  These positions are classified as Project positions.  The classifications that have been identified for the program are:  Institutional Services Worker and Institutional Services Aide in Health Services and Clerk – Beginning Level in the County Library.
