Navigating career, community, and connection
Founded in Greensboro, NC, we aim to change the way our world views and hires adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We aim to do this in partnership with Chez Genèse through a vocational training program. This program empowers our students to learn more about themselves and the hospitality industry, gain the skills and experience they need to enter the workforce, and obtain and maintain employment in our community.

Who We Are
We are a vocational program located in downtown Greensboro, NC and we are passionate about connecting adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to the greater Greensboro community and vice versa.
We believe in the intrinsic value of every human and are fighting against the marginalization of people groups, specifically adults with disabilities.
We expect and aim to change the way our community trains, interviews, and hires adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that our world becomes a more inclusive and diverse place, accepting and embracing of all people!
We were founded in 2020 for the primary purpose of providing life, social, training, and networking skills to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through coaching, connecting, training, and networking.
The secondary purpose of Compass Greensboro is to advocate for disability rights, give voice to the disability community, and increase awareness and educate the general public (both in Greensboro and around the world) on behalf of adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Accomplishing Our Goals
We plan to achieve our goals through a vocational program that includes the following:
A 6 month job training program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities specifically geared towards the hospitality and foodservice industries. The program includes personal development & disability awareness courses, hands-on training with our partner restaurant Chez Genèse, and an internship with supported job placement and maintenance.
BUSINESS TRAINING PROGRAM
Compass Greensboro offers leadership and coaching classes for business owners and managers specifically geared to make workplaces more inclusive. All of our business partners who work with students in the internship phase go through these courses.
