EmployAbilities is a three-stage, eight-week, comprehensive private-pay employment training program, created by The Whole Person.
The program’s goal is to provide young job seekers (minimum age 18) living with a developmental disability, an opportunity to refine their working and job-seeking skill sets. While EmployAbilities will focus on training in the TWP Catering Kitchen, students will acquire skills that will serve them in any employment environment where they have an interest in working.
