Case Study 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.
