LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Riverfront Incorporated in La Crosse is building confidence for teens with disabilities looking to enter the workforce.
The organization is looking for participants to take part in its 11 week career building program called C.O.R.E. It’s a revamp of a similar program started last fall, which graduated 9 participants.
This year the organization is focusing on teens 16 and up, who are not funded for through state programs like Family Care or IRIS.

The program starts next Monday.
