Parent    Want some help in preparing your child for the workplace?   What can you, in turn, teach others?

Partners in the Community    You are needed to share your areas of expertise, as according to the Code of Conduct in the areas of professionalism, confidentiality, and accountability (1). You can make a huge difference in the life of a young person facing challenges.   It's a great feeling to help prepare challenged young adults for employment.   Everyone knows someone who struggles due to special needs and learning differences.   

Candidates     The Candidate is the primary decision maker using informed choice (1).   We are collaborating with other dedicated and awesome workplace-readiness, job-training groups.   Our objectives are to help the Candidates achieve "integrated employment normalization, defined by what they do and how they contribute to the workplace, knowing that they might need additional supports or accommodations" (1) .  So far, our candidates have chosen LinkedIn as their professional platform.

The Lives We Impact

We donate 1 hour a month, filling in whatever gaps exist, using best practices of discovery,  naturally-occurring community and workplace supports, full employment, mutual respect and courtesy, professionalism, accountability and full networking knowledge of what everyone else is offering.  Here is our Road Map to Success and our experience so far.

We are delighted to see each new resource to help those challenged with learning differences continue to learn ever-increasing functional skills.  If there are holes, we seek to help fill them.  

We will get to know each other better, will practice People First language, and will do all we can to ignite the intrinsic motivation that supports the Candidate as the primary decision maker, using informed choice. (1)
