Webinar: Enough is Known for Action: Collaborative Partnerships Serving Youth with Disabilities

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On July 24, 2015 (EST)

This webinar will be held on July 29, 2015, from 2:00 – 3:30 PM Eastern Time and is a partnership between the Employment & Training Administration’s (ETA) Division of Youth Services and Boston Regional Office, the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), the Department of Education’s Rehabilitation Services Administration, and the Institute for Educational Leadership.

The unemployment rates for youth with disabilities are significantly higher as compared to their peers without disabilities due to a range of factors from attitudinal barriers to inaccessible programs and services. To ensure all youth, including those with disabilities, have access to career planning services, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) encourages seamless coordination between state and local agencies, workforce providers, and other providers to help youth with disabilities realize their career goals despite the individual challenges they may experience. During this webinar, the presenters will highlight program designs, service delivery strategies, and lessons learned on leveraging collaborative partnerships to develop comprehensive programs and to coordinate supportive services during program participation and after job placement. This session is the 6th webinar of the Enough is Known for Action series, which is designed to provide states and communities with guidance and inspire strategic planning before and during WIOA implementation which began on July 1, 2015.
