Congressman Yarmuth visited UPS on January 23rd, 2015. He became aware of the Coalition for Workforce Diversity and what is happening at the Transitional Learning Center at UPS. This was a call to action for other employers to hire more people with disabilities.  Watch the videos below:

Transitional Learning Center

The Transitional Learning Center (TLC) at UPS began operations on September 14, 2014. Located within Worldport, the main Air Hub for UPS’s global transportation network, consumers participate in a two week Training Program in a simulated work environment before having the ability to transition to regular employment as a UPS Package Handler. UPS currently employs over 100 Package Handlers as a direct result of Coalition Agency referrals, with many having been trained through the TLC. More applicants are welcome as a new class is scheduled to start every 2-3 weeks. Please contact Libby Gootee at Libby.Gootee@gmail.com for further details.
