Every young person—with and without disabilities—should have the opportunities and supports needed to pursue meaningful work. These six stories feature six amazing youth/adults with significant disabilities who began working in competitive-wage, community-based jobs between the ages of 16 and 18. All of them use or used natural supports.
The stories outline the ways schools, communities, families, and youth themselves came together, and the significant contributions these youth are making on their jobs and in their communities.
