Project Able seeks to:

Sponsor career awareness events that expose college and high school students with disabilities to professions in which they may have an interest and can find meaningful work, make significant contributions and build rewarding long-term careers. Please see our events page to view upcoming and past events.
Help students obtain internships by running events that assist students with, among other things, resume writing, mock interviews and suggestions about how to talk about their disability.
Establish programs which seek to match qualified candidates with disabilities with employers who will provide meaningful work experience and the opportunity for them to get to know each other in ways that could ultimately lead to full-time employment.
Increase awareness and dialogue between students with disabilities and potential employers who are committed to achieving meaningful diversity & inclusion success with this community.
