From Employment To Empowerment
Connecting Youth To Meaningful Employment.

Starting your first job can be stressful, especially if you are a youth and have barriers to employment.
It takes commitment, and it takes work, but you’re not alone!

The Learn 2 Earn program offered at EmployAbilities will help you through your training to be employed.

If you are between the ages of 15 and 30 years old, with barriers to employment, this program could be for you!

We assist youth with barriers to employment, including disabilities, medical and mental health conditions who are ready, willing and able to take the necessary steps to find and retain employment through training & certifications.
