What is a Direct Support Professional (DSP)?
Are you excited by the prospect of being a positive presence in the life of another person?
Then being a Direct Support Professional may be the perfect job for you!
DSPs partner with people with disabilities so that they can lead a life of their choosing. Our DSPs support people in their homes and communities, on their jobs and at continuing education and college classes. They use all the resources New York City has to offer — from museums to local recreation centers. Each person we support is matched to a DSP based on personality and common interests.
The position offers flexible hours based on your availability and is a great match for people in school, raising families, or balancing other responsibilities. It is also a good way to start a career. (See career ladder).

I was hired at Job Path in 2012 to facilitate a dance class at a community center. I was so impressed by the DSPs that I applied for a position. My first experience was supporting an individual in his classes at NYU. Soon after I became a coordinator in Supported Living. Now I supervise a wonderful team of coordinators that were also promoted from within. — Cerezmy Salcido, Senior Director of Supported Living and a member of Job Path’s Senior Leadership Team
I was working at a language school when a job developer from Job Path came to tell us about a job seeker. I was fascinated and applied to Job Path. In 2011, I started as a DSP. Shortly after, I became an employment specialist. In 2014, I was promoted to Senior Program Manager. Today, I oversee an entire team and mentor people in the department, as well as at other organizations through Job Path’s technical assistance work. — Ryan Finger, Director of Employment (Intensive Services)
