ADEC’s newest program fills the GAP between high school and career for individuals with disabilities
ADEC’s new Growth and Purpose (GAP) program is designed to help bridge the gap between education and employment. The program, which launches in April, is open to any individuals with disabilities interested in joining the workforce.
Only about one-third of working-age people with disabilities are employed, but a partnership between ADEC, South Bend schools and Beacon Health System is working to change that.
