Every 1 Can Work was created to provide permanent employment opportunities for young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Over 84% of young adults with cognitive disabilities are unemployed, but not unemployable – there is a big difference. This most vulnerable segment of our society is often the last hired and the first fired at businesses driven solely by profit. And despite many wonderful public and private vocational training programs and well intentioned government support efforts, thousands of these talented young people end up spending their most productive years sitting on couches watching TV shows all day long. A job means much more than just a paycheck; it means self-esteem and a purpose in life.
Every1 Can Work is a non-profit organization that employs these intellectually challenged people and supervises them in the production of delicious chocolate creations and other food-related products and services. Our goal is to earn enough money to keep the employees working. And to make that happen, they have to deliver unique, high-quality chocolate products to the market place.
