Approximately 70% of adults with disabilities are unemployed in the U.S. These individuals are highly dedicated, talented, and genuinely want to work. And now, many of them are thanks to the strong partnerships formed through the MNPS Exceptional Education Department's Community Based Transition Program. This program has opened the door to internship opportunities, work-based training, and even gainful employment. But the students aren't the only ones who benefit. Check out the video below for an in-depth look at the power of community-based transition programs. A special thank you to the students and teachers who allowed us to tag along (with cameras) on their busy days, as well as the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, Holiday Inn-Vanderbilt, Airport Marriott, the United Methodist Publishing House, Skyline Medical Center, Martin Professional Development Center, and the MNPS Customer Service Center for not only opening their doors to our students and staff, but for participating in this video.
