When we first began, our program started with working with the Challenge – Mozaic Alliance who were providing vocational training services at our ranch. These programs are no longer being offered as we consider our new initiatives.
Challenge is the largest nonprofit provider of vocational training and employment services to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. in the Finger Lakes Region. Some of the employers they partner with include Cornell University and other large companies and institutions.
