Based on a successful state-level collaborative model between Missouri’s workforce development and rehabilitation systems as well as a Center for Independent Living, this webinar will showcase the key ingredients necessary to develop a partnership that focuses on supporting youth with disabilities that are being served through Pre-Employment Transition Services under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Participants will learn how to create partnerships, identify areas of collaboration to help youth excel in preparation for and during employment, and maintain relationships during uncertain times when youth with disabilities need the strongest support to achieve their potential in competitive, integrated employment and economic self-sufficiency.
