BroadFutures

BroadFutures is revolutionizing the way young people with learning disabilities enter the workforce.

Fewer than half of young people with learning disabilities obtain regular, paid employment within two years of high school graduation. And yet programs to help them successfully transition into employment are scarce. BroadFutures is filling the gap, preparing youth with learning disabilities and ADHD (ages 18 – 26) for the workforce. Using drama, graffiti arts, yoga, and more, a two-week training program creatively engages youth to strengthen their resumes, interview skills, communications, and overall professionalism. Through partnerships with more than 50 diverse employers, participants then work at least 20 hours per week at paid internships designed to match their interests and aspirations. Meanwhile, BroadFutures provides ongoing mentoring and supervision, working together with interns and employers to address successes and challenges. Over 90% of graduates are gainfully employed or continuing with higher education: a broad (and bright) future indeed.

The holiday season is just around the corner, and we invite you  to kick it off with us on Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back. On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, people around the world will come together to celebrate generosity and make an impact. This year, we want to hit our goal to ensure we can continue to be a resource and changemaker in this community. 

That's why this Giving Tuesday, we're inviting you to join us in supporting our local community. You can donate right now, or create a personal fundraising page and ask your network to donate as well.
