After 22: College to Career

Anixter is partnering with City Colleges of Chicago and Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities to create a pathway for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to attend college. 

After 22 is a trailblazing initiative that links Chicagoans with developmental disabilities to educational and career opportunities. Now, young adults with developmental disabilities in Chicago will have access to the resources they need to succeed. After 22 puts the individual’s needs and interests at the forefront: whether it’s college courses, a job, or community involvement, After 22 puts the supports in place for each student to forge their own path. Each partner brings unique value to After 22, which makes the initiative unlike any other in the State of Illinois. Daley College and Anixter Center are creating customized educational plans focused on communication strategies, and self-advocacy. Anixter Center’s strong network of employment partners will connect individuals to meaningful jobs and internships. 

We’re thrilled to be part of this groundbreaking initiative.
