Welcome to the Ready for Takeoff Blog!

Oct 15, 2019

In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we have created this forum for the latest news, updates, and events around RFTO themes including college attendance, completion, and professional advancement opportunities for persons with disabilities. We will also take you behind the scenes as we work on films and other academic collaborations with The Viscardi Center and our community partners in this venture. Check back for scheduled screenings and presentations for the 2, 5, and 10-minute films our students are producing.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions! Feel free to email us at
