Existing programs do not address the needs of young people whose disabilities involve a lack of organization, attention, social skills, and capacity to handle stress, all of which can significantly hinder progress and the ability to maintain a job or stay in school. Early paid work experiences are the single greatest predictor of future success for young people with disabilities. Our unique program prepares young people for these experiences.
