About this workshop:

This workshop is geared for families with children/youth aged 5-15 (youth not yet job searching).

We will discuss:

  • Having high expectations – why does it matter?
  • How responsibilities/chores at home and extra-curricular activities can build skills and attitudes for future work
  • Myth-busting (Yes – many youth with disabilities work! Employers value diverse workforces)
  • Programs and services that promote participation
