Work Without Limits

For students with disabilities, the CGCS has established a partnership with Work Without Limits (WWL), a network of resources dedicated to promoting job and career growth for persons with disabilities throughout Massachusetts.

Work Without Limits programs and services are geared to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities who are seeking jobs, businesses that actively recruit people with disabilities, and the employment providers that serve individuals with disabilities.

WWL hosts an Annual Disability Mentoring Day each year. This event allows you to meet with a professional one-on-one who works in a field tied to your major. Mentees have the opportunity to shadow employees and learn more about job and internship opportunities with them.

Below is a list of things you can do to get the most out of the WWL partnership. And of course as always, the CGCS is here to support you and answer any questions you may have.


1. Attend WWL Mentor Day, Conferences, Job Fairs, Webinars, and Other Events 
2. Read the Disability Disclosure Guidebook
3. Register for the Online Mentoring Program through Partners for Youth with Disabilities
4. Learn about free Benefits Counseling if you receive public benefits such as SSI, SSDI, Medicaid and/or Medicare

6. Join the mailing list to receive news and information to help you advance toward your career goals
7. Review resources focused on disability inclusion, workplace accommodations, and much more
8. Follow the WWL blogFacebook pageTwitter page, and the LinkedIn page for the latest updates and opportunities

 

Disability:IN 2022 NextGen Leader applications are coming! The NextGen Initiatives empower college students and recent grads with disabilities, including veterans, to be successful in the workplace.  Disability:IN NextGen Leaders have the opportunity to connect with leading brands across all industries. Students are matched one-on-one with mentors from Disability:IN Corporate Partners and experience an all-expense paid trip to the Disability:IN Annual Conference where NextGen Leaders network and interview with companies like Boeing, Facebook, JPMorgan Chase, and Microsoft.  This is a great way for someone to transition from school to work and start a promising career.
