National Disability and Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) Occur Each October

Each October, ACCES-VR has the opportunity to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and celebrate the work of all our partners, who join together to make the connection between businesses seeking qualified workers and workers, who just happen to be individuals with abilities.   Based on the successes, ACCES-VR and our partners will be celebrating at multiple events across New York State.  These celebrations will emphasize local businesses investing in their local human resources and providing the opportunity for skilled workers to contribute to their communities, earn a living wage and have meaningful careers.

2022 NDEAM Winners

National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is observed every October.   The 2022 NDEAM theme is, “Disability: Part of the Equity Equation.”  ACCES-VR is honoring businesses and workers that are committed to our mission of assisting individuals with disabilities to achieve and maintain employment and supporting independent living through training, education, rehabilitation and career development.
