Sunflower Bakery and Cafe Sunflower will be closed April 5th-13th for Passover.
As young adults with learning differences age out of the school system at 22, they are thrown into an underfunded and uncoordinated system with scarce opportunities for skilled training and employment. The need and scarcity of opportunities to meet the need has created a significant demand for skilled employment training and job opportunities in Metro DC.
Since 2010 Sunflower Bakery has been responding to the need through training adults 18+ with learning differences due to diagnosed disabilities, as well as adults with learning differences that are undiagnosed due to socioeconomic impacts or inadequate and/or inconsistent educational supports.
Our approach works because we are student centered and collaborate with stakeholders across our community

Our student-centered model is successful because of strong community support. Our community is interconnected and includes a vast array of stakeholders including student supports and families, local schools, disability professionals, donors, customers, employers, state agencies, the Jewish community, and more. We are stronger together and this collaborative efforts works in service to the success of our students.
Everyone has a role to play at Sunflower! Join us today.
