Holding a job means so much more than collecting a paycheck. It is an opportunity to contribute to your society, to be needed, to give back, to share your skills, and to make friends. Delivering Jobs is a national inclusion campaign designed to create pathways to one million employment and leadership opportunities for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) by 2025. This campaign is in partnership with Autism Speaks and Special Olympics through a unifying third-party organization, Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).
Please visit the Delivering Jobs Website for resources and to pledge your support for this initiative.
Where We Are
An estimated 81% of adults (18+) with intellectual and developmental disabilities do not have a paid job in the community. The Best Buddies Jobs program has participants employed full time who each have the potential to earn a total income upwards of $1 million over 30 years and contribute $250K in taxes back into the economy.
