About Us

We formed TennesseeWorks with one goal: to increase the number of young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are employed in the state. In other words, we are working to ensure every young person with a disability can find a good job, with good pay, that brings real satisfaction, and makes a real difference. Together, we are working to implement policy and systems changes that make competitive employment the first and desired choice for every Tennessean. Watch this video to hear TennesseeWorks partners and stakeholders discuss our statewide efforts to increase employment for people with disabilities.
