A community employment program
for employers and adults with down syndrome

 

The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City (DSG) offers adults with Down syndrome support to obtain and keep employment that best suits their skills and interests. DSG's Helping Individuals Realize Employment Dreams (HIRED) program connects employers with capable employees to increase profitability. 

With guidance from the individual with Down syndrome and their family, the DSG identifies potential career opportunities, goals, interests and assesses strengths and talents of the candidate. 

DSG provides team training to employers to support and identify on-the-job needs for the employee with Down syndrome. Ongoing support and job coaching services are available to employees and employers to ensure success.

DSG is invested in the happiness and success of our members and employers.We assist with:

  • Creating individualized career opportunities
  • Matching the skills, needs and interests of people with Down syndrome to employers in need
  • Assisting with supervision and provide consulting on job accommodations.

Together we will break down stereotypes as the community sees our valuable and capable members included in the workplace.
