Gateway to Learning's mission is to provide lifelong learning to adults with intellectual challenges and developmental disabilities that promotes active inclusion at home, at work, and in the community. Now serving 94 adults in Chicago’s Lincoln Square, programming focuses on skill acquisition in key life sectors, including: pre-employment, functional academia, citizenship, empowerment and advocacy, and daily living/home life. A strong emphasis is placed on vocational training specifically in the culinary arts, with 4 operating kitchens, a bakery, and Dorothy’s Can-Do Café which sells over 30 varieties of cookies and chocolates.

Rockabilly music has its moments. But rocking one's abilities, aka #rockABILITY, now that's a hit!

Tickets will be available via eventbrite.com soon.
