Bridges from School to Work

Eccovia Resources

Each year in the U.S., approximately 400,000 youth with disabilities exit public high schools. The majority will remain unemployed in the year following their graduation. In fact, disabled young adults are twice as likely to be unemployed as their non-disabled peers.

For over 30 years, Bridges from School to Work (Bridges) has focused on enhancing employment opportunities for young adults with disabilities. The staff at Bridges understands the important, life-changing role that employment can play in the lives of young adults as they transition from high school into the working world. By connecting youth with businesses seeking capable entry-level workers, Bridges provides the training, mentoring, and long-term support these recent graduates need to thrive.
