The Marriott Foundation for People with Disabilities, through its “Bridges. . .from school to work” program, seeks to enhance employment opportunity for youth with disabilities. Working collaboratively with all involved, Bridges endeavors to create a stepping stone to productive and fulfilling employment for youth exiting special education and a stepping stone to a rich and largely untapped applicant pool for employers. Grounded in the conviction that youth with disabilities can be employees with capabilities, the program ultimately strives to develop strong, mutually beneficial employer/employee relationships.
