People with disabilities can accomplish amazing things—and careers are no exception. That is why BCI is establishing a first-of-its-kind vocational training facility specifically for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We will begin the Skills Center with two vocations and strategically increase careers and participants every six months. Our goal is to have at least 10 vocations and training to over 100 students by 2021.
The Skills Center will be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity. Tuition will be needed for participation. However, we anticipate that through scholarships and supplemental state agencies, the cost to receive vocational training will be of little to no expense to the individual.
BCI believes strongly in the need for appropriate skills training taken to the highest level for people with disabilities. Through use of our own funds, we are financially investing in the core staff for the launch phase.
As we advance vocational training to a higher level, we seek the support of those likeminded businesses to provide the greatest opportunities for people of all abilities.
We will transform anyone's desire to work into something meaningful and fulfilling.
To assure confidence in learning environment, employment, and properly navigating needs.
For individualized learning and real training.
Students can observe and learn as they explore a number of different career paths.
To strengthen relationships and develop training for both employee and employer.
To provide an ongoing source of dedicated, well trained workers.
