Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Job clubs as employment entry points for people with intellectual disabilities
Instituto Jô Clemente (IJC) is a São Paulo-based non-profit organization supporting the health, social inclusion, and rights of people with intellectual disabilities. Through its Professional Inclusion programme, started in 2013, it uses a three-stage model to increase the labour inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. The model consists of job clubs, supported employment, and community-based rehabilitation. In 2019 more than 500 people gained employment in the open labour market.
“People have the respect of other colleagues in the company, deconstructing any stigma or prejudice.”
