Improvement in Employment for Job Seekers With Disabilities

July 25, 2023

In an interview with NBC News, The Able Trust CEO Allison Chase discussed the improvement in employment for job seekers with disabilities. Recently released job numbers by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the employment-to-population ratio for disabled individuals now stands at a record high of 22.4%. This improvement in employment reinforces how important it is for Florida students, including students with disabilities, to understand their career opportunities as they plan for the future. 

This summer, The Able Trust teamed up with the University of South Florida College of Nursing to give students participating in the High School High Tech (HSHT) program an intensive two-day program introducing them to the nursing profession. The first of its kind for The Able Trust, the career experience gave HSHT students hands-on training with USF College of Nursing professionals. Through engaging activities, students were also given the opportunity to form connections with other HSHT students with similar interests.

Learn more about the camp here and if you have an idea for a summer program that would introduce students with disabilities to your industry, please feel free to contact Allison Chase at [email protected].
