YOUTH WITH DISABILITIES:

What WILL you do?

Work is an important part of people’s lives. It means more than just getting paid. It means being able to make your own choices about how you want to live your life.

At work, it’s what people can do that matters. If you are a young person with a disability, only you can decide your limits. You can work in a wide variety of jobs and play an important role in America’s economy. In fact, experience with a disability can help in a job or in starting a business. Today more than ever, businesses need people who can think differently about how to solve problems and get the job done. People with disabilities do this in America’s workplaces every day – and so can you. So set your sights high! Along the way, remember that resources are available to help you seek employment, succeed on the job, and understand your right to be judged on your ability, not disability.


Tell us what you WILL do!
If you are a young person with a disability, we’d like to hear from you!

Please take a moment to share your career aspirations. By doing so, you will help increase employer awareness about the many ways today’s youth plan to be tomorrow’s leaders and will encourage others to dream big!

The one thing I would do is get a part-time job and go to school half of the day. Then I would save up my money and then open up my own business one day. Because I want to be a chef, I got an idea to open my own food truck.
