Infrastructure for the People (IFP) is a Non-For-Profit Corporation whose mission is to run our program Leadership in Workforce Development (LIWD).
LIWD is a workforce development program which trains-to-hire for FREE, hundreds of underprivileged and low-income residents of our communities.
We work with government workforce & economic development programs, to assure all companies hiring our candidate trainees are rewarded with thousands of dollars in savings per hire.
Infrastructure for the People along with James Emmett & Company https://jamesemmettandcompany.com/ bring you this innovative project that will help the tolling industry access the most loyal & dependable workforce on the planet - people with autism and other disabilities.
Bridge to Inclusion will initially focus on two core positions within the tolling industry:
• Image Reviewers- people with autism bring the
visual acuity, attention to detail, and accuracy skills to this role
• Call Center Agents- people with disabilities bring the positive attitude, social structure, and detail orientation necessary for this role.
To help thousands of people with autism and similar disabilities obtain career-oriented employment in the tolling industry.
Bridge to Inclusion will be a cohort of companies that are primarily involved in back-office tolling operations. We will look to launch the cohort in the beginning of 2021 with 3 to 5 initial companies and the goal of helping 50 to 100 job seekers with disabilities to obtain employment in those companies by the end of 2021 - totaling 200 to 500 total jobs in the first year.
To help companies hire call-center agents and image reviewers. We will build in-depth knowledge of both positions and even potentially look to build job training efforts for individuals who are interested. Our first year will focus on the United States but eventually we will look to expand bridge to inclusion globally.
Once a company joins the cohort, we will help them build their autism and disability inclusion initiative in three major areas:
1. Sourcing- create a sustainable pipeline of candidates with autism and disabilities
2. Supporting- build natural support strategies that help each candidate with a disability thrive in their new job.
3. Messaging - create both internal and external messaging that help the company to communicate the goals of their disability initiative.
IFP is a unique and trendsetting nonprofit. We drive social impact, leveraging the nation's 3rd largest market sector "INFRASTRUCTURE' unmet demands and needs. Our model is not founded on transactional handouts. Our approach is to drive public support and cultivate a public private partnership vertically driven with our industry . This approach is pioneering, the first vertical nonprofit in the world.
In principle, we recognize corporate leaders and employees are every bit as caring and emphatic. Corporations and shareholders already support our society in great many ways. Yet, recreating a new model of fostering private-public social partnerships, requires a higher level of understanding and collaboration between industry and the community. Our model assures benefits are win-win.
The issue is structural, therefore IFP offers a program 'Leadership In Workforce Development'. LIWD program provides an opportunity for corporations to clearly demonstrate their commitment to the communities their infrastructures serve. At the same time rewarding their efforts with numerous business and financial incentives.
IFP offers a new model of charity public service, which bestows relevance and value to all our corporate donors,
