Meaningful Day Project
Support people with developmental disabilities (DD) by expanding awareness of potential career opportunities.
Meaningful Day projects improve access to meaningful employment and community activities for people with disabilities. Grantees test models and build organizational capacity to help people with disabilities achieve meaningful outcomes.
Best Buddies is coordinating career exploration events in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas to support people with DD who seek meaningful employment in their communities. The events will be hosted by local employers. Attendees will develop essential job-seeking skills through roleplaying exercises and mock interviews. Following the events, Best Buddies will select 16 people to enter the Best Buddies Jobs program, where participants will complete training in job development, pre-employment, or work exploration skills.
