Why Us?

Our Motivation

Demand for inclusive digital products is rising, but tech designers, engineers, and project managers simply aren't being trained in accessibility skills. As a result, many organizations struggle to find the talent and resources they need to achieve their accessibility goals.

Our Experience

For the past 20 years, AFB has been a leader in accessibility consulting and helping organizations achieve their immediate goals for digital inclusion. But solving immediate problems isn’t enough to meet the accessibility needs of an ever-changing industry.

Our Purpose

We are transforming the future of digital inclusion by leveraging out skills to train the next generation of tech talent in inclusive design practices through a hands-on learning environment, meeting both the immediate and future needs of an increasingly diverse industry and world.

"AFB's apprenticeship program has been life-changing for me. Not only have I learned so much about web accessibility testing, but I've also found a supportive and inclusive community that has helped me thrive."
