MentorABILITY Career Development Program
is an exciting career development initiative for young people with
disabilities. Local business partners and employers volunteer as
mentors to provide a variety of career guidance, exploration and
internship opportunities to give job seekers the insights, experiences
and connections they need to get ahead.
It's all about encouraging people to realize their dreams, and enabling employers to help grow the talent that their businesses need to succeed in today's competitive world.
Classes are designed to provide students training to transition in to the World of Work upon leaving High School. By presenting opportunities of ‘real-world' experience with local business partners and employers, the students are better able to understand and manage the challenges that face them when searching for employment. Each student's employability is maximized through exercises and workshops, designed to be interesting and useful, while encouraging them to stay in school to receive the best education prior to joining the work force.
