Wednesday, June 24, 2015
3:00pm - 4:30pm ET

***The LEAD Center, funded by the US Department of Labor’s Office on Disability Policy, is hosting a four-part webinar series titled "WIOA From a Disability Perspective."***

Understanding Changes Regarding Youth Services - Part 3 of 4

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA) places expanded emphasis on funding activities for out-of-school youth, including youth with disabilities. WIOA also amends the Rehabilitation Act that requires VR agencies to collaborate with local education agencies to improve coordination of pre-employment transition services to students with disabilities.

Join this webinar to learn more about cross-system collaboration and WIOA opportunities to support career counseling, skills training, job exploration, leadership development, and financial literacy education for youth with and without disabilities.

Please note: All LEAD Center webinars are captioned and presentation materials are sent to participants in advance of the webinar. For any other reasonable accommodation requests, please contact Brittany Taylor at btaylor@ndi-inc.org.
