Applications Now Being Accepted for Fall Uniquely Abled Academy
The goal of The Uniquely Abled Project is to shift the paradigm of thinking from “disabled” to “uniquely abled." It starts by preparing people with high-functioning autism to take on high-performing jobs in the workplace through an innovative job-training program held at Glendale Community College and appropriately called, The Uniquely Abled Academy. Applications are now being accepted for the Fall 2017 Uniquely Abled Academy.
The Uniquely Abled Academy is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between machine technology educators, specialists in education for those with autism, representatives from state and local social service agencies, and non-profit and for-profit organizations. This exceptional combination is dedicated to properly train, place in the workforce and provide on-going support for qualified students seeking skill-specific well-paying jobs within the manufacturing industry.
For more information about this unique vocational training program, check out the flyer for the open house being held Tuesday, August 15, 2017. The open house will be held at Glendale Community College from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is for parents and students. Attendees need to RSVP and request a parking permit from firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due Wednesday, August 30, 2017 and classes start September 18, 2017.
