Narrative

Pathways to Careers is a person-centered, zero exclusion employment program for persons with disabilities.
The program consists of four elements:

1. Discovery – An extensive look at each program participant’s interests, contributions, and conditions for success.

2. Paid Internships – As we identify each participant’s skills and interests, we pair them with one of our employer – partners who have signed Partnership Agreements and have unmet workforce needs that match that individual’s talents and interests. Each paid internship lasts an average of eight to twelve weeks.

3. Customized job placement - If the internship host employer is not able to convert the internship into permanent employment, we will help the participant find a suitable position with another company.

4. Post Placement supports - Our Internship Facilitator will be on site to help with training and the transition to structured natural supports.
