Employment, Development, Guidance, and Engagement
The Arc, Ocean County Chapter is excited to announce a new opportunity, in partnership with the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI), to support 120 blind and vision impaired student enrollees in a program called EDGE.
EDGE (Employment, Development, Guidance, and Engagement) will support both high school and college students in the transitioning into independent living and career development, by offering both classroom instruction and community-based, career-focused employment experiences.
In addition EDGE staffers will be working with a team of blind and vision impaired mentors, to enhance programming by assisting enrollees to see that blindness and vision impairment are not excuses for dependence, and no match for capable, enthusiastic youth.
