Alyssa's Story

Alyssa was a student who benefited from an individualized education program (IEP) in high school. However, she was unsure of her path after graduation. Later she decided work was her best option. Alyssa completed a 10-week paid internship with the Staples Program. The Staples Training Program through Ability KC helped offer over 25 individuals with disabilities paid internships.

The participants were great candidates for employment due to their training. Alyssa builds many valuable skills in the program. These included work ethic, teamwork, and problem-solving. She also received training in machine operation, packaging, stocking and shipping, and receiving. She was offered a permanent position at the Staples Fulfillment Center.
