Best Buddies International, in conjunction with Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out its “Pre-Employment Training Program”, which will consist of mentoring young disabled people and assisting students before they join the labor market.
The goal of this project is to bridge the gap between the two aspects mentioned above, providing critical transitional services in terms of training disabled students prior to gaining employment.
The students will be able to finish their studies and enjoy special training to prepare them for the world of work and to develop their career paths. The program offers older students a series of more intense sessions.
Founded in 1989, Best Buddies International is a non-profit organization committed to establishing a worldwide volunteer movement that creates opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Best Buddies' eight formal programs have a positive impact on over 1,090,330 people with or without disabilities around the world.
