Guided Group Discovery – Veterans and Youth Editions


The LEAD Center created two new versions of Guided Group Discovery materials–one for veterans and the other for youth. Both include a Facilitator Guide; the youth version has an added supplemental slide deck. These materials complement LEAD Center’s original suite of Guided Group Discovery materials: Introduction and Course, Participant Workbook, and Facilitator Guide. These resources also train people to facilitate Guided Group Discovery sessions with veterans, youth, adults with disabilities, and/or others who experience barriers to employment. LEAD Center has supported pilot projects implementing Guided Group Discovery in American Job Centers (AJCs) in collaboration with a variety of partners, including veterans services, vocational rehabilitation, developmental disabilities, behavioral health, Centers for Independent Living, homeless services providers, and others.
