Fewer than half of young people with learning disabilities finish college or find stable employment.
Let’s change that.

One in five individuals has a learning or attention issue. BroadFutures is revolutionizing the way young people with learning disabilities enter the workforce. Our unique approach builds confidence, improves communication skills and enhances job performance. We incorporate experiential learning opportunities that serve to challenge comfort zones and empower young people to achieve transformative, positive and successful futures.

“The initial training had a tremendous impact on our son, giving him a roadmap to understanding and meeting the expectations of the workplace, the ability to speak more confidently to an audience, strategies for managing his emotions,  and an increased ability to engage with the world around him.”
Douglas and Kathleen Long,
Winter 2019 Parent

"BroadFutures transformed my son's life. It gave him the skills and self-confidence to succeed in ways he didn't believe were possible, and set him on a new course of academic and professional success. I can't say enough about the staff and the internships they facilitate, and most importantly the way in which they approach interns in a holistic way, seeking to improve not just their job skills but their readiness for independent and happy lives. It is not hyperbole to say that BroadFutures untaps potential in these young people that might very well otherwise go unnoticed."
Darrin Hostetler,
Summer 2019 Parent
"This is a great program with very talented people who are molding kids to be great employees and to have the self-confidence to do it."

“From the application process through the completion of the experience, things seemed to run with heart and a goal of excellence.”
