Evaluation of NJIT's EmployME! Program
Evaluation of a program offering training and job placement to individuals with disabilities.
The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) launched, through support from the Henry H. Kessler Foundation, an innovative and collaborative demonstration program to address the workforce challenges of the disabled population while responding to job needs in the information technology and information services labor market. The program offers high-quality training and job placement to individuals with physical disabilities, as well as sensory and cognitive disabilities, residing in Essex County, New Jersey for jobs in the information technology field. The Heldrich Center worked with NJIT and its program partners to evaluate the EmployME! Program and to measure the effectiveness of its model.
