The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration kicks off its Disability and Employment Boot Camp.  Six teams comprised of state, regional, and local members from Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, and Virginia will engage in a six-month coaching process to identify a disability and employment challenge area and participate in an intensive, accelerated learning process focused on current, real-time issues.

The goal is to strengthen the capacity of the American Job Center network to support individuals with disabilities to enter, stay in, or return to the labor force.

 

Stay tuned for updates as the teams follow a facilitated process to identify root causes to challenges, solicit buy-in from stakeholders, and pilot possible solutions.
