Alaska Works Initiative
Alaska Works Mission: Alaskans who experience disabilities are employed at a rate as close as possible to that of the general population.
For the past several years, the Governor's Council on Disabilities & Special Education and the UAA Center for Human Development have been working with individuals with disabilities, state agencies and service providers to implement the Alaska Works Initiative, which is designed to increase the employment rate of Alaskans with disabilities. Together, stakeholders are working to increase opportunities for productive, career-oriented, and truly community-based lives for themselves and others.
