The Brown School of Social Work at Washington University recently featured DeCycleIt! as a 2011 winner of the YouthBridge Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Contest.
CEO Matt Burridge is featured in the article about the social entrepreneurship mission of DeCycleIt! and Project, Inc., which focuses on hiring developmentally disabled adults living in St. Louis City and St. Louis County.
Project, Inc. currently employs 92 certified workers with a wait list of 100 individuals in the St. Louis area. Lives are transformed here. Friendships begin. Positive social interaction within a dignified employment setting is accomplished daily for our certified workers.
We are grateful for the help we receive from businesses and individuals throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area for our workshop to continue our mission to help adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities find stable, long-term employment.
We’re entering new markets – and training our workers new skills to work effectively in these markets.
We plan to keep the buzz loud and clear about Project, Inc. now and in the future!
