"To show people with disabilities that we love them, means showing them that we value them. — Pope John Paul II
TTC believes that people with disabilities can have great success in the labor market when they have the right supports and are given a chance! Teaching Together Chicago does just that!
Teaching Together Chicago provides on-the-job experience and training for young adults with disabilities in local Catholic or other faith-based schools throughout the Chicagoland area. Generously supported by The Coleman Foundation and the community, Teaching Together Chicago has placed people with disabilities in paid internships at over 50 local Catholic schools over the past year. We are pleased to report that the majority of those interns have been hired as permanent employees – proof that people with disabilities can be excellent employees!
Our thanks to the following for opening doors to employment:
Let's Teach Together!
Teaching Together has successfully (and proudly) helped young adults gain skills they are now using as paid employees. We’d love to talk to you about how we can work together to improve the lives of those living with daily challenges!
