WEBINAR: Guided Group Discovery: Paving the Way to Employment

Monday, June 26, 2017
3:00pm - 4:30pm ET

Don’t miss this webinar on Guided Group Discovery: Paving the Way to Employment, in which we will share materials you can use to implement Guided Group Discovery through cross-system partnerships. You also will hear about the many pilot projects in which Guided Group Discovery has been used, and hear from implementers from the public workforce system, their disability partners, someone who has benefitted from the process, and possible applications for youth and adults with disabilities, veterans and people involved in the justice system who are seeking employment.

Guided Group Discovery (GGD) is a set of strategies that can benefit any job seeker who faces barriers to employment. GGD is a universal design approach used within workforce development systems to enable youth and adults with disabilities, and others, to secure and maintain employment. These strategies serve as an alternative assessment tool that identifies the strengths and ideal conditions of employment for job seekers with and without disabilities, resulting in a “blueprint” to guide job development. Additionally, the GGD process assists job seekers in identifying employment that would be a good fit for both them and employers. Discovery is the cornerstone of customized employment, which increasingly is being used as a universal design approach by workforce development professionals.
