They say if you teach a man to fish, you have fed him for a lifetime. Outside the Box's Employment Services program is helping men and women with developmental disabilities learn how to "fish" every single day.
At OTB, we approach the world of developmental and intellectual disabilities a little differently. We belive these individuals should be given the same opportunities as everyone else. They should be viewed by society, but more importantly, themselves as capable individuals who can enrich their own lives by contributing to their community. For that to happen, they need to aquire a few skills first. That's where our E3 campagin comes in.
E3 stands for Educate, Employ, and Empower. First, we Educate our participants on the skills and knowledge they'll need to get a job. Then we assist them with searching, locating and securing a job until they are Employed. Once employed, we monitor their progress to ensure they are Empowered.
Monies from this campaign will be used to launch an extensive marketing campaign for our employment services division. Funds will also go to the training and education of our Career Support Specialists on best market practices as well as the most up-to-date methods for working in the developmentally disabled industry.
