Start on Success was launched in 1994 in response to the high unemployment and underemployment statistics among people with disabilities.

It also demonstrates to employers that these young people can become a highly valued resource in the workplace. This program is a year-round initiative funded by the Philadelphia Youth Network.The program creates a partnership between Communities In Schools of Philadelphia, Inc., the School District of Philadelphia, the National Organization on Disability and the Marriott Foundations Bridges from School to Work Program.
