We Work!

The mission of our We Work! Career Planning Initiative is to empower individuals with Down syndrome to utilize their strengths and abilities in a meaningful place of employment in their area of interest, earning a prevailing wage and contributing to their community.  This program provides support and resources for job seekers with Down syndrome as well as for employers, thereby ensuring teens and adults with Down syndrome become productive members of their community.  By establishing high expectations and standards within our program, we will create a positive change in the way employers view people with disabilities.  A new session begins in the fall. For more information contact DSACK at 859-494-7809 or dsack.org@gmail.com.
