Celebrate EDU is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing online business & entrepreneurship education to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the U.S.

HOW WE BUILD OUR PROGRAMS:

We pride ourselves on having programs that are effective in teaching business, self-advocacy, and entrepreneurship to people with disabilities. Over the years we have developed a process to ensure that our students are getting as much out of our lessons as possible:

  1. Identify gaps and opportunities to teach valuable skills to the disability community
  2. Build videos and interactive activities to teach concepts using a variety of educational principles
  3. Use individuals with disabilities to test new lessons, making changes based on their understanding and feedback
  4. Add tested lessons to our website for use by partner organizations and registered students

OUR VISION:

Celebrate EDU believes that every person, regardless of ability or disability, should have the chance to build a meaningful life.

OUR MISSION:

To empower self-advocates with developmental disabilities to create happy and purposeful lives by providing entrepreneurial education that builds on their interests and strengths.

OUR VALUES:

Building Community Through Collaboration

Ensuring that people with disabilities have the opportunities they deserve is not something we can do alone. Partnerships are incredibly important to building the future we want to see.

Leading Change Through Innovation

Technology is at the heart of everything we do at Celebrate EDU. We believe that thinking outside the box is the only way to push things forward.

Fostering Trust Through Transparency

At Celebrate EDU, we are an open book. We believe that sharing both our challenges and our celebrations is what will make our community more successful.
