Teacher. Student. Doctor. Lawyer. Volunteering. Mom at home. Into business. Or unemployed. Whatever our situation is, our life is linked to work.
Work offers us a stimulating environment, which allows each of us to learn new skills, to keep our mind active by overcoming new challenges and to grow as a person. It gives us the opportunity to gain more autonomy and independence. Earning our own money means being able to take care of our needs, our wants, and to support ourselves and our loved ones. And that’s not all. Working also means belonging to a community, being part of a group, part of the world.
In the end, all of these benefits can be summed up by the feeling of being valued as a human being. And why should it be any different for our young adults, just because they may have a disability?
Lucy G Craft Cafe currently employs 15 young adults, who love working for all the same reasons as we do! Let’s get to know some of these wonderful people.
