Take a moment to meet the Missouri Division of Workforce Development
We asked each of the organizations that make up the Show-Me-Careers Consortium Leadership to share some information about their agencies.  As you will see below, the Missouri Division of Workforce Development  (DWD) offers an incredible array of resources that supports all citizens, including those with disabilities, in their career development.  The Division of Workforce Development is working to facilitate the inclusion of Career Center representatives on Show-Me-Career Pilot Community teams and encourage local partnerships that benefit youth with disabilities in their transition from school to community employment. 
The Missouri DWD supports 34 Missouri Career Centers throughout the state in cooperation with 14 Local Workforce Investment Boards that contract with local community providers for many of the workforce services that are offered.  Staff in each region serve a variety of customers with a wide range of needs.  A number of state and community resources are accessed by staff for their customers--many of whom have lost their jobs and are trying to identify job leads that their skills and experience qualify them for.  Still others are trying to find employment after being out of the labor market.  The Career Center staff actively seek to identify additional resources that can be utilized by its customers.
