Employment is a critical part of community inclusion for people with disabilities. For youth, a smooth transition from education to employment is equally essential. Securing and maintaining employment helps many people to achieve independence in their communities, but there are often barriers to accessing meaningful and integrated employment.

To address these challenges, ACL and its Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) administer a range of initiatives that aim to improve employment outcomes.

ACL, and our federal partners, also work to support the use of volunteers in Older Americans Act programs and to provide expanded opportunities for older adults and others to get involved in their communities.
