The Academy at Glengary has created an initiative to better prepare its members—adults on a journey to recover from serious mental illness—for the modern workplace. Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the William G. & Marie Selby Foundation and $100,000 from the Florida legislature, the academy's "Gateway to the Future" initiative will provide the tools and training to help give academy members an advantage in their quest for gainful, fulfilling employment.

The funding will be used to train academy members in the use of tablets, computers, smartphones, Smartboards, and more. Software purchases will include Adobe and Microsoft products, Office 365, and a new Voice Over Internet Protocol phone system.
