The Empower Program

Our pilot program addresses the vocational needs of the unemployed and/or under-employed disabled population in Stark County, OH.

This supported employment service is a paid training option, available to adults with disabilities transitioning after graduating high school into the workplace. At WLLC, trainees are introduced to a variety of vocational services such as soft skills, volunteer opportunities, time and money management, computer skills, and more —all in a cheerful, bustling retail coffee shop in the heart of North Canton.

WLLC provides community enrichment, promotes equal opportunities and focuses on decreasing dependency of public funding. Transitioning adults will have equitable access to job preparation, financial independence, transferable customer service and work-readiness skills

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
