ABOUT JTTP

VIABILITY's JTPPs are sophisticated, state of the art programs for people with disabilities that have been recognized nationwide and received multiple best practice awards. Trainees participate in a nine-week, industry specific training program onsite at the host employer. Successful trainees are eligible for hire by the host employer. By 2011, Walgreens had hired 234 individuals with disabilities; 47% of them were program graduates. VIABILITY’s JTPP programs have met the demands of major companies, including Advance Auto Parts, Walgreens, Geodis, Travelers, Sephora, and Alex & Ani.
