About Gatepath

AbilityPath's (formerly Gatepath and Abilities United) mission is to empower people with special needs to achieve their full potential through innovative, inclusive programs and community partnerships.

AbilityPath is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving children, youth and adults with special needs and developmental disabilities and their families in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. AbilityPath has been an established local nonprofit for more than 96 years and has experienced substantial growth over the last several years. The organization continues to partner with various local nonprofits, businesses, government agencies and third party providers to bring the best quality of service to those receiving services, and their families. Together, we are working to create a world where people of all abilities are fully accepted, respect and included in all aspects of life – in the classroom, the workplace and in our communities.


Community Instuctor Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Daly City, CA
“I loved being able to engage with my participant and the community”

Adult Services Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Redwood City, CA
“I really enjoyed working with adults with special needs in a small setting on a daily basis. I soon learned that there was no way I could possibly prepare myself for every situation I would be in and in a way learned to let go. Every morning I came in with an eagerness for what the day had in store and I sure did learn on my feet and from being thrown into situations! I especially enjoyed learning how to create curriculum, do class preparation, and ultimately teach!”
