Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.
This program encourages young people to set high expectations and take steps to meet those expectations.
This video program will introduce you to dozens of people with disabilities who describe how they found their paths to successful careers and why they love their jobs.
The Role Models in the Open Futures videos inspire young people to explore careers and follow their dreams. They also help parents, counselors, and prospective employers appreciate the value that people with disabilities bring to the workplace.
