2024 Summer Workplace Readiness Webinar

July 8 @ 12:30pm - 2:30pm CDT

There are exciting FREE opportunities for transition-aged students with a disability/social challenges who are at least 14 years old but less than age 22 (who are still enrolled in a secondary school) to develop critical skills for workplace readiness and self-advocacy! One of the best predictors of successful employment is the ability to demonstrate pro-social skills.

These Pre-Employment Transition Services through Zoom video conferences will utilize a highly effective and evidence-based curriculum to build these critical skills required for employment success. These interactive and engaging activities will feature the PEERS (The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) curriculum, with an emphasis on teaching social awareness and self-advocacy skills to participants, especially as they pertain to the workplace environment!

See the following dates and times for the Zoom video conferences:
