The U.S. Department of Labor is committed to ensuring America’s workforce is for Americans of all abilities, as represented in this year’s theme, “America’s Workforce: Empowering All.” Granite State Independent Living (GSIL) proudly joins this commitment, entering its third year serving at-risk students with disabilities across the state through the IMPACCT Program.

Meet Isaac, a senior at Littleton High School. Isaac struggled with managing his academic frustrations and navigating social interactions. He had difficulty expressing his ideas, sustaining a task, maintaining focus and accepting the social rules in school. He grew angry and frustrated in social situations, sometimes reacting impulsively or becoming defiant. That’s when Isaac was accepted into IMPACCT AcademyTM. The program allowed Isaac to explore his passion for IT support while developing new approaches to overcome life’s challenges.
