Career Partners is changing the employment landscape for youth with disabilities.

All too often, youth with disabilities who transition from school to work are unemployed or underemployed. Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs focus on training and sustainable employment with livable wages.

PHILLIPS' focus is on the “whole person” and a living wage is directly tied to assuring a persons’ human dignity and equity.
