Employment and Job Training for People with Disabilities

Across the country, we’re helping people with disabilities, older workers, and veterans find and hold meaningful employment.

We do this by helping all individuals identify job skills necessary for today’s workforce through person-centered employment services, and connecting them to other supports like assistive technology and accessible transportation. We’re also proud to work with local, regional, and national businesses to find employment talent.

Contact us with any questions you have about our employment and training services.

Once you’re ready to begin your road to employment, find your local Easterseals to get started today.
