Employment Development Growth for Excellence (E.D.G.E.)

Darden Rehabilitation Foundation wants to give people with disabilities an EDGE in obtaining competitive employment. Some people with disabilities lack the technological skills needed to find and obtain occupational opportunities. Our goal is to improve technological skills of people with disabilities so they will be able to search for and secure competitive employment. People with disabilities will obtain the EDGE by attending classes for eight hours per day for five days. Subject matters to be covered are: using the internet to search for occupational opportunities, filling out applications online, writing great resumes, keys to successful interviews, presenting positive attitudes, work skills and habits for job success, and grooming, dressing and body language. We know these skills will give people with disabilities the EDGE in finding, obtaining and securing competitive employment.
