Evaluation of the EmployMe! Training Program for People with Disabilities
Evaluation of training program for persons with disabilities.
From 2007 to 2009, the Heldrich Center conducted an evaluation of the EmployMe! program established by the New Jersey Institute of Technology under a grant from the Kessler Foundation. The EmployMe! program provided training to individuals with disabilities to help them obtain information technology jobs. The center’s evaluation featured a quasi-experimental design that compared the employment outcomes of participants with those of similar individuals who did not participate in the program. The Heldrich Center also used a questionnaire to obtain feedback from individuals participating in the program.
