Add Us In
Add Us In is a Federal Granted Program whose overall goal is to build cross-sectorial capacity for educational work experiences and jobs for youth and young adults with disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The demographic of young people with disabilities is growing, however the vast majority of these disabilities do not prevent the person of performing most personal and professional tasks. The problem is that kids automatically think that they will not be accepted by any employer.
The HBF Approach
Through a sustainable network of disability, diversity, and business experts, Maryland’s chapter of AUI aims to increase the capacity of targeted businesses to provide work experiences and employ youth with especial needs from under-represented and historically excluded communities within Montgomery County.
Some successful initiatives we have implemented in the AUI program include:
- Small business seminars
- One-to-one consultancy
- English as a Second Language incubators
- Youth sports media camps
