Access 2 Accessibility's goal is to provide programs and resources for people with disabilities and older adults. These are delivered in-person, on-line, and/or hybrid.
The majority of A2A's programs and resources are focused on career and entrepreneurial empowerment and support for people with disabilities and older adults.
A2A also delivers programs and projects for personal interests and social engagement.
Other programs/workshops such as 'Building Your Employ-Ability' are delivered to businesses and organizations for a donation to A2A.
As a Social Enterprise Access 2 Accessibility looks to these donations as revenue to subsidize free or low-cost programs to people with disabilities.

The program will be lead by professional people with disabilities who have a background in public speaking.
We will look at accessibility tools and resources to help members develop, or grow more confidence, in their public speaking whether communicating with one person, many people, or on stage in front of an audience.
Members will have the opportunity to learn enhanced public speaking. We will learn how to do interviews, pitch competitions, and professional presentations. Along with hands-on experience and practice of public speaking, members will learn about accessibility in their presentations.
