Empowerment, Diversity and Inclusion
- Employment services for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing
- Diversity Training for Employers
- Customized Employment Services for Job Seekers and Businesses
Grant funding from The Able Trust is expanding MTC’s services to people who are deaf and hard of hearing. This includes young people seeking first time employment and adults seeking a new job or advancement on their chosen career path.
HEAR is expressly designed to provide individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, who have traditionally been underserved, the opportunity to gain employability skills, vocational counseling, resume preparation, job development, job placement assistance, interpreting services in American Sign Language, job maintenance (follow-along), career advancement, benefits planning, and service coordination.
Diversity Trainings are available to employers. Our team works together with the shared goal to change stereotypic employer attitudes, unconscious bias and outright employment discrimination, which often denies people with disabilities the chance for employment. Through exposure to our many resources, those situations in which an employer is willing to provide an employment opportunity to an individual, but may lack the confidence or awareness of the supports available, may instead have successful outcomes of meaningful, full time employment.
