Become a STARS Business Partner!

Abilities in Motion’s STARS is a unique, six-week summer program that allows students with disabilities, from ages 16 to 21, the opportunity to develop real-life working experience and a solid work ethic.

Abilities in Motion (AIM) seeks local businesses to partner with our STARS program and provide venues for our STARS to get to work.  This program runs at no cost to the business partners.

AIM always sends a staff person along with the STARS to supervise and facilitate with the business partner.  STARS can visit as little as one hour per week or as often as four hours per week.  We are flexible and will work with a business’s needs.  STARS participants work best together in small groups.

This summer, STARS will be available for work on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The program runs July 6 – August 14, 2020.

Please call Jaclyn Nagle at 610-376-0010 x104 or email jnagle@abilitiesinmotion.org for more information on this free program.
