The Accessibility Bridge Employment and Career Readiness Program (ECRP) is a job-readiness program addressing barriers to employment for youth and young adults with disabilities via our pipeline that includes educational equity and access to mentoring programs. We work with community partners to teach relevant job skills, provide work experience through volunteering and internships which will prepare our clients to obtain, retain and excel in their workplace. Our ECRP program helps develop communication, problem solving, resume building, interviewing skills and helps develop the work habits needed to succeed.
The goals of this program include:
Benefits of Employment for People with Disabilities
As part of our Employment Initiative, we support and promote businesses that employ, train, or are owned by a person with a disability. This type of support keeps our community members with disabilities gainfully employed, earning livable wages and guides them toward many levels of independence.
With only 18% of adults with disabilities being employed, entrepreneurship is extremely valuable when wanting to enter the job market on your own terms and contributing to financial security and socio-economic development.
Help us support them by supporting their businesses.
If you are a person with a disability or an employer and would like your business to be added to our list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
