Connect 2 Careers is a Rhode Island based program linking employers and students with disabilities.
This year they are proud to announce that their program has doubled in size but they need more employers to be willing to step in as well.
“We are finally connecting our students in transition with opportunities and possibilities about what happens after graduation,” said Joanne DelAngelo, the director of the program.
Connect to careers is a Rhode Island based program linking employers and students with disabilities.
“They’re able to talk about their dreams and what they really want to be when they grow up and what they want to explore and who is exciting to them in the world of work,” said DelAngelo.
And with a program double in size this year, they need double the number of employers.
Specifically contractors, builders, electricians, computer it companies and video game designers.
Each student from the northern part of Rhode Island and east bay who are participating have submitted resumes and interests.
They are set up with 6 employers that match their interests.
Connect 2 Careers has had many success stories through the past few years.
Emphasizing relationships between the schools and employers as well as networking between companies.
The event is full for students but still open to businesses interested in connecting with students on April 11 from 9am – noon at the Portsmouth Highschool gymnasium.
