The Employment Services Program provides an array of training and employment services for youth and adults with disabilities.
Our dedicated team of professionals work closely with each individual for talent discovery, skill development, and societal integration from high school and beyond.
The League works with area employers to help them meet their hiring needs and diversify their workforce by connecting them with qualified, pre-screened candidates. Many of our business sector partners play a key role in the training of future employees by providing volunteerism, training/education, and mentoring opportunities for our participants. As an added benefit of employment, all participants have access to the state-of-the-art Wellness Center and Therapeutic Pool.
The League is thrilled to provide quality job candidates to the following businesses in Maryland: Home Depot, Didlake, Chick Fil A, Atwaters, League Industries, Sheppard Pratt, Cinemark, Weis Market, AJ Michaels, Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, Time Out for Sports, Taharka Brothers, Blind Industries and Services of Maryland, Middlesex Elementary School, and The League for People with Disabilities.

*** The League’s Employment Services are funded through the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) and the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS). DDA’s New Directions Waiver, LISS funds, and Private Pay are also accepted.
The League partners with the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) and local school systems to provide Pre-Employment Transition Services to students with disabilities while still in school. Specific services available through The League include:
Individual paid internships are arranged for each student based on their unique interests, skills, and needs. The League partners with local employers who “host” students in temporary training experiences, while League staff provide both on- and off-site job coaching, training, and support.
Tailored to meet each student’s specific needs, job coaching services are provided to students working in after school programs, on the weekends, or during summer jobs. The support offered may include a mixture of on- and off-site training and counseling as they establish and progress towards their goals.
The League uses person-centered planning to assist each of our participants in establishing, preparing for, and achieving their career goals. We provide services to youth and adults with all types of disabilities, ranging from mild to significant, with particular expertise in the following areas:
- Intellectual Disabilities
- Physical Disabilities
- Transitioning Youth
- Emotional & Behavioral Disabilities
