VR Y-TAC: Supporting Youth on their Journey to Employment
Monday, December 17, 2018
1:00-2:00 pm EDT
This webinar will introduce you to the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Youth Technical Assistance Center (Y-TAC). Y-TAC is a U.S. Department of Education’s Rehabilitation Services Administration-funded Technical Assistance Center that is charged with providing State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies and related rehabilitation and youth service professionals with technical assistance to help more effectively serve students and youth with disabilities.
The Y-TAC provides TA and training to state VR agencies to help them find and engage youth with disabilities (YwD) who are not in special education as well as YwD who are no longer in school and not employed. Learn about frameworks and training modules available as resources for youth service professionals as they support youth in personalized career planning, employer engagement, internships, and STEM career exploration. Presenters will discuss approaches designed to foster cross-boundary collaboration to promote the comprehensive transition of youth to adulthood leading to engagement in postsecondary education, training, and competitive integrated employment.
• Understand what the Y-TAC is and what it offers to each state;
• Study how the Y-TAC can benefit professionals to increase their capacity to serve youth; and
• Apply strategies and tools for developing partnerships to increase post-school outcomes for youth.
