Show-Me-Careers Project Update
We recently had our annual Technical Assistance visit from Institute for Community Inclusion representatives, who came together with the Consortium Leadership and our 8 Pilot Communities in Jefferson City, Missouri. We heard great updates on the progress each community is making towards early work experience for youth with I/DD. The meeting was also a time for identifying and discussing barriers to early work experience and action-plans to overcome them. Our hope is that collaboration between agencies, communities, and families, as well as access to the right information, will open the door for more youth with I/DD to begin career planning and exploration much earlier.
