The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville (DSAJ) is launching its Career Solutions Training Academy in September 2019.
The DSAJ staff and Board of Directors have been out in the surrounding Jacksonville community singing the praises of our adults with Down syndrome and the potential they have to be lasting and essential staff members of local businesses. That potential is there, but most people with Down syndrome do not have the individualized training to secure and maintain a job. The DSAJ has created a special curriculum to help them realize their employment dreams and then help those dreams become reality.
We know that people with Down syndrome learn and retain information very differently than those with other IDDs (Intellectual and Developmental Differences). Our teachers and staff know how to educate and motivate in order to ensure success in future jobs and careers. Choose one of the pages below to learn more or click on Apply Now to get started!
