According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), eight out of ten adults with disabilities aged 16 years and older are not engaged in the labor force. This stark statistic and the passing of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) in 2014 led to the creation of EightTen, a social enterprise designed to develop collaborative approaches to workforce challenges facing employers, educators, service providers, and millions of disengaged youth and young adults with differing abilities.
