Employability skills for all students are essential for future success in the work place. For students with disabilities, the teaching of these skills at an early age is imperative. Young adults, in high school , need the structure and direct skill teaching in order to develop their work ethic. Work ethic and other soft employability skills; taking initiative, problem solving, team work and customer service are stressed by employers. This project will focus on building employability skills for youth with disabilities so that they will have future opportunities to work and contribute to the community.
