DE&I Spotlight

Mohegan Sun in Connecticut has emerged as an industry leader by creating custom disability inclusion programs serving a large population of people. There are three core programs that provide access and training to many of the 80 Mohegan Sun departments:

The Viability program

An embedded agency in our employee center at Eagleview that receives referrals from the Connecticut Bureau of Rehabilitative Services (BRS) with the goal of achieving employment. The Viability program has achieved a placement rate of nearly 80 percent.

The Mohegan Sun Student Vocational Inclusion Program (MSSVIP)

Mohegan Sun has partnered with many of the local transitional academies, where 18-21 year-old students spend a traditional school year calendar and rotate to our property periodically. Students get exposure to a wide range of our services, including Culinary, Environmental Services, Grounds Keeping, Arena, and Retail outlets. Graduating students receive assistance when transitioning to the workforce.

Project Search

A unique, business-led, nine-month internship program for students with developmental disabilities. Interns in the program complete three rotations at Mohegan Sun with the main goal of gaining the necessary skills to obtain competitive employment. The program provides real-life work experience combined with training in employability and independent living skills to help youth with significant disabilities make successful transitions from school to productive adult life.
