Today over 90% of adults with Down Syndrome in Ireland are unemployed.
The Together Academy is going to change this.
The Together Academy is a unique college and social enterprise café in Dublin, which will provide people with Down syndrome specialised certified training, on the job experience, future work placements and a critical social and support network. We will transform the employment prospects and lives of young adults with Down syndrome in Ireland.
How will it work?
Commencing in Dublin in 2021, The Together Academy will be a catering and hospitality based educational college and social enterprise café. It will be designed for a future national roll out to fulfill a huge unmet demand throughout the country.
