Transition – School to Employment – Job Foundation SUCCESS


Transition - School to Employment – Job Foundation SUCCESS
Job Foundation Project is a collaborative project between Developmental Disabilities Administration, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction that started in 2020. It connects DDA eligible students aged 19-20 to adult employment services, with the goal of leaving school with a job. The second year of the project focuses on job development. Join representatives from DDA, DVR, and Counties for an update on the first year of implementation. You will hear directly from a student who participated in Job Foundation and successfully found employment prior to school ending. Attendees will also learn about the partnerships and collaboration efforts behind the project, and how Job Foundation supports the pathway to employment. Start early ... Employment for All!
