What is EmployAbilities?

EmployAbilities is a three-stage, eight-week, comprehensive employment training program, created by The Whole Person. The program’s goal is to provide young job seekers (minimum age 18) living with a disability an opportunity to refine their working and job-seeking skill sets. While EmployAbilities will focus on training in the TWP Catering Kitchen, students will acquire skills that will serve them in any employment environment where they have an interest in working.

Diversify Your Company

The Whole Person works with talented job seekers, assisting them to find a job where their skills, knowledge and abilities are a strong match for essential job functions.  We provide screening and analysis of aptitude, soft skills and specific job skills.

We assist employers in finding qualified candidates to create a diverse workforce. Broadening your recruitment efforts to include persons with disabilities provides a competitive edge and assists your organization to reach its maximum potential.
