YAI is partnering with the largest local social services agency and the largest urban university system in the country in a unique effort to prepare people for careers supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). In September, students interested in entering the profession began a 12-week training course at CUNY's Kingsborough Community College designed and taught by YAI staff.

On September 19, participants in YAI’s first-ever Management Development Program celebrated their graduation. Led by experts from Smergut Consulting, Rutgers University, and The National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities at the University of Delaware, the year-long course was open to senior managers whom supervisors had identified as having the potential to transition into top leadership roles at the agency.

Every year, YAI’s 4,000 employees help more than 20,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) live more independent and meaningful lives. And, every summer and fall, these staff cultivate the next generation of I/DD professionals while demonstrating what it means to be a person-first agency.
