Bridging the gap between school and work with Growth and Purpose.

From landing a job interview to negotiating a job offer.

The skills and training center is designed to help bridge the gap between education and employment.

Some young adults with disabilities choose to join the workforce right out of school, but some young adults with disabilities find themselves in an awkward gap- they have graduated or “aged out” of the public-school system, but they would still like to develop job readiness skills before pursuing their career.

The skills and training center is open to any individuals with disabilities interested in joining the workforce but is aimed at upcoming and recent high school graduates. Individuals receive certificates of completion to demonstrate job readiness to employers in the following categories:

  • Setting goals
  • Job Hunting
  • First Impressions
  • Professionalism
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Confidence
  • Success in the changing job market

    Help us fill the GAP.

    Many of the people we serve have ambitious career goals — just like you or me — but they sometimes need some extra coaching to prepare themselves.

    Your donation could help fill the GAP between education and employment.
