Show-Me-Careers Project Update

Ensuring Equal Employment 

Near the end of August it was announced that new regulations were added to the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Act (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. These new regulations will help ensure that qualified workers will have better opportunities to find and keep a good job. Read more about VEVRAA or Section 503

 Spotlight On: 

Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation Take a moment to meet the Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation!
We asked each of the organizations that make up the Show-Me-Careers Consortium Leadership to share some information about their agencies.

Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation is proud to be a part of Show Me Careers. Our mission of putting people with disabilities to work fits in perfectly with the goals and guiding principles of the grant. We recognize the value and importance of engaging early in a person's life to not only help build self-advocacy, but offer any supportive services needed, as well as education and outreach to families. These are components which can help guide our youth to prepare and plan for the world of work. Read More
