Our Strategic Direction

Sunflower Bakery is building upon its solid foundation and strong track record providing workforce development training to young adults with learning differences by reaching more students through increasing enrollment in current programs and expanding training options.

Under three priorities, Sunflower will:

  • Further strengthen the organization’s core through operational efficiency and excellence in administration;
  • Maximize our impact “where we are” by growing in place at our Halpine Road and Executive Boulevard locations; and
  • Grow and diversify programs to better serve our students and their employers.

From FY 23 to FY 25, Sunflower Bakery will increase the number of students enrolled in our workforce development programs by 50% and support our graduates in finding competitive employment in the communities where they live.
