Bender Leadership Academy

Moon Township, PA

We are proud to induct the Bender Leadership Academy into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.

Bender Leadership Academy delivers competency building programs that enable students with disabilities to engage in educational, empowerment and work opportunities, celebrate successes, and set and achieve career journey goals. Established in 2018, Bender Leadership Academy is founded on a commitment to serving the disability community.

Bender Leadership Academy focuses on the value and abilities each person can contribute to the workforce. Beginning as a volunteer mentoring program with the single purpose of helping youth transitioning into the workforce, the organization is now multi-faceted with programming that provides a comprehensive approach to addressing systemic barriers to employment.
