Customized Employment: Know Your Value! Let's Start Work! Virtual - 27571

This free session will be the springboard into paid employment. YES, even during this time of unemployment we believe that students can start building their resumes with work! We will talk about how to identify possible work based on what was learned and how to connect in terms of negotiating with business owners to meet their needs. It is highly recommended that parents, educators, and VR also attend additional sessions to fully support youth with disabilities: Everyone Can Work! Discovering Individual Potential | Where Are You At Your Best? |Using Handheld Technology | Earning Money and Social Security Benefits!
