The Fly Brave Foundation's mission is to offer employment training for adults with developmental disabilities that have aged out of the school system, focusing on three essential building blocks; vocational training, social/life skills, and living a healthy lifestyle through fitness programs.
Statistics reveal that upon completion of high school and transitional programs, over 80% of adults with developmental disabilities are unemployed (California Employment Development Department [EDD]). In 2016, only 18.5% of working-age individuals with developmental disabilities were gainfully employed in the Alta California Regional Center catchment area. However, with support and training, individuals with developmental disabilities are capable of full participation in gainful employment within their community.
Our priority is the individual first and helping them to reach their full potential in living a purpose filled life. We believe everyone deserves to the opportunity to work in a field they are passionate about. The purpose of this program is to teach the social, emotional, and vocational skills needed for clients to prepare and enter the workforce.
Fly Brave's Employment Training Program provides support and training to bridge the gap between school programs and paid community employment. We offer an opportunity to build on our clients strengths in helping them to reach their full potential.
