TRANSITION TO EMPLOYMENT
Come help define gainful employment pathways for youth and young adults with disabilities. As an Employment First state, Kansas’ priority is for youth and young adults with dis-abilities to transition into employment. The Transformers Coalition—a coalition of state agencies, nonprofits, and other interested parties—needs you to help identify successes and challenges youth and young adults with disabilities experience during the transition to employment. Youth, young adults, family members, community members, educators, providers, and other professionals should attend.
Town hall meetings will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in seven locations across the state.
