Job Foundation & Transition Community of Practice
The next Washington State Job Foundation and Transition Community of Practice Series event will take place on April 19th from 1:00 to 2:30 PST. This session will showcase Okanogan, Pend Oreille, Spokane and Island counties. We will focus on these communities' school connections and relationships to understand how they have further advanced best practices and provided information and education to families, schools and community partners. Join us to hear and see examples of success with engaging schools in local communities. Trivia and prizes will be included!
The series is running on the third Tuesday of each month from 1:00 to 2:30, through the month of June. All transition stakeholders are invited to attend, including employment providers, school representatives, DVR counselors, DDA case managers, counties, students and families. Come learn about the Job Foundation program and help increase employment outcomes for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in your community. Join us if you have something to share, want to learn more, or if you need specific help with the Job Foundation report. These Community of Practice events will be loosely structured around a topic related to the Job Foundation program and transition services. They are designed to be flexible in meeting the needs of those engaging in transition services in their local communities. We look forward to seeing you!
