According to the Florida Chamber Foundation’s recent unemployment report, there are more than 1.13 million Floridians with disabilities between the ages of 16 and 65. Of the 1.13 million, 700,000 people with disabilities are not currently in Florida’s workforce.
The Florida Chamber Foundation’s Internship Program seeks to help close the talent gap by connecting businesses with workforce needs to valuable talent.
My Nature’s Delight is one of the 10 businesses who were selected to take part in this pilot program.
“Being a part of this program is important to My Nature’s Delight because it allows us to help with the unemployment gap when it comes to workers with disabilities, but most importantly- it’s allowing workers with disabilities an opportunity to work and show off their special gifts and talents,” said KAFI CHARLES-KING, My Nature’s Delight. “We believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to fulfill their career dreams and aspirations and because of this, we are extremely grateful and proud to be part of the pilot year of the foundation.”
