Young adults with chronic illnesses and disabilities may be referred to the Career Path program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Career Path works to train and place these young adults into competitive positions all across the Hospital. Most of these candidates have not yet gone to college or had the opportunity to earn any employment experience, so this program is an important resource in their preparation for adulthood. Career Path is staffed by a vocational counselor, job coach, social worker and physical, occupations and speech therapists. The team helps train these young adults for the workplace through group sessions, coaching, and individual support that teach real life work skills.
