Closing the Gap Between University and Employment

What is Accelerate? 

Accelerate is a college-to-career program that helps students and recent graduates with disabilities develop practical knowledge and independent job search skills that assist in gaining competitive employment. Our program partners with universities, Bay Area businesses, and you to change the narrative of employment to be more inclusive and diverse.
