Blueforest Gives Back Applicant Spotlight: Enable America

Enable America Job Board

The Enable America Jobs Board is one of many ways Enable America assists wounded warriors, disabled veterans, and individuals with disabilities. It provides an outlet for the individuals to find employment suitable for their needs. The picture is very inspirational and the direct message from it is: no matter what circumstance a person faces, anything can be achieved without limitations. We had to see exactly what else Enable America does for these powerful individuals.

Enable America is dedicated to providing employment assistance for wounded warriors, disabled veterans and individuals with disabilities. The organization’s goal is to work with all members of the community, such as advocacy groups, employers and government agencies, to eliminate employment barriers and bridge the gap between disabled job seekers and employers who want to hire them.

Enable America connects job seekers with employers through a wide range of programs such as VetConnect, Career Mentoring Days and Job Seeker Workshops.

The VetConnect program was developed to help wounded warriors, disabled veterans and individuals with disabilities readjust to their communities and the workforce easier, or return to active duty. Through the program, wounded warriors are paired with similarly wounded peer mentors who have completed or are completing the recovery process.

Career Mentoring Days promotes career development for people with disabilities through hands-on career exploration, job shadowing, and training opportunities. People with disabilities from the community, including high school students, college students, or adult job seekers participate in this program. Mentees are provided the positive support they need to pursue their dreams.

Job Seeker Workshops give disabled veterans the opportunity to work directly with human resources professionals to improve their job seeking skills. Human resources professionals meet with disabled veterans in groups and one-on-one, offering them job-related resources and advice. The workshops are held eight times a year.

What we love about Enable America is how they greatly support individuals and families who have served us well. Wounded warriors, disabled veterans and individuals with disabilities all have the ability to work, but sometimes it can be a struggle to find employment. Enable America is a valuable vehicle that connects these individuals with a multitude of opportunities to guide them on the pathway to success. They are providing the ultimate gratitude for serving our country.
