Project SEE 2013 is now accepting WAITING LIST applications for participants and job coaches. It is a 6-week supported employment program for students, aged 16 – 21 with developmental disabilities. The program will run from June 24th through August 2nd , with two days off on July 4 and 5. We place student interns in jobs with various businesses and agencies throughout the community. Each work site will have a Project SEE job trainer, with a ratio of one trainer to two interns. The purpose of the program is to allow students to gain valuable job skills such as a greater sense of independence, appropriate social interactions, and how to be a team player and more as well as earning 126 competitive employment hours.
The cost of Project SEE 2013 is $812. More information on this can be found on page 3 of the application. A deposit is not required for waiting list applicants unless accepted into the program.
Participation in Project SEE requires a commitment to the full six weeks of the program.
If you have any questions please contact Susan Swearingen, program director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-832-2660 ext 133.

For Our Employers
The IRS provides a non-refundable credit called the Disabled Access Credit to provide access to persons with disabilities. The credit can be taken each and every year the business incurs access expenditures. See the IRS Form 8826, Disabled Access Credit for additional information about eligible expenditures. The Capital Expenditure Tax Credit (up to $15,000 annually) is available from the IRS in the Architectural Barrier Removal Tax Deduction. This program encourages businesses to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the mobility of persons with disabilities and the elderly. An employer can claim a tax credit for a significant portion of first-year wages of a new employee if the employee has a disability. See the IRS Form 5884, Work Opportunity Credit for additional information.
