**NYS APSE: Capacity Building Initiative—Ambassador Program
Promoting CESP™ Certification in New York State

Act now! A limited number of fully-funded seats are available!

The New York State APSE Ambassador Program is a capacity building initiative aimed at increasing the number of CESP™ certified professionals in New York State. The purpose is to ensure a high quality supported employment workforce, with the goal of increasing employment outcomes for people with disabilities in New York.

This initiative, funded by the New York State Partnerships in Employment (NYS PIE) project, will provide the opportunity to evaluate whether increased numbers of CESP™ certified professionals has an impact on service quality, job retention, and overall supported employment outcomes. NYS PIE will provide funding for a maximum of one senior supported employment professional per agency in New York State to sit for the CESP™ exam, which will be held in conjunction with the NYS APSE Conference in May 2016.

Ambassador participants (limit: one seat per agency) will agree to:

  • Work within their own agency and community to promote APSE’s Supported Employment Core Competencies by providing mentorship and leadership support
  • Provide feedback at periodic intervals to the project team as a means of assessing overall impact of the initiative.

Please note: Qualifying agencies from the 2015 Ambassador Program are not eligible.
