Collette Divitto, a young woman born in 1990 with Down syndrome and a lot of tenacity, a self made entrepreneur and disability advocate, founded Collettey’s Leadership Programs after successfully starting her own business, Collettey’s Cookies. Before going into business in 2016, for herself, Collette had tried for years to find a paying job and experienced constant rejection and heartbreak, always being told she was not a good fit. Collettey’s leadership Programs was born out of her first-hand understanding of the challenges that the disability community faces in trying to enter the workforce, earn a living to live independently and become a valued human being his/her community. Collette’s desire is to help others with a labeled disability find friends, career success, community leadership through her programs of empowerment, education and training.
