To prepare people with disabilities for competitive employment through computer access technology, and career transition services.
TransAccess helps provide opportunities for advances in universal access, social integration and employment for people with disabilities. The TransAccess Mentoring Program provides individuals with disabilities an opportunity to meet one-to-one with an adult mentor who serves as a guide, advisor, and personal coach.
The mentoring program is offered to people aged 15-years of age and older. Time spans for mentoring range from 3-months or more, depending on objectives and availiability of mentor and protege. The program seeks as many mentoring hours as possible each month averaging 4-5 hours per month. Phone calling and emailing also count toward mentoring sessions.
Mentors are recruited from a diverse population group, including varied careers, ages, education levels, and personal experiences.
Although the mentoring program works with individuals with all types of disabilities, including physical and sensory, the vast majority have what is generally called a Learning Disability, such as Dyslexia, or ADD.
