ACCESS Employment

Employers


Need a boost? The best way to advance your business's competitive edge could lie in providing opportunities to youth with disabilities.

Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) and the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation have formed a strategic partnership to support educators, support professionals, students and families in preparing for transition (age 14-21).   Pre-ETS (Pre-Employment Transition Services) are five activities required by the Workforce Innovations and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

To this end, WIND is actively seeking to connect with Wyoming employers, Human Resources professionals, business owners, managers, and supervisors to share knowledge, build connections, and collaborate on efforts to prepare youth with disabilities for employment.

UW ECHO for Employers - Online Professional Community

Wednesdays, bi-weekly (May 15 to August 21), 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. MST via Zoom video conferencing technology.

During the Spring and Summer of 2019, we are offering an exciting opportunity for employment professionals. We will meet online (via Zoom video conferencing technology) to explore disability employment best practices - specifically for youth with disabilities - to identify strategies for cultivating a pipeline of qualified individuals throughout the state, for all types of industry.

This is an opportunity to learn from and share information with industry peers and fellow businesses regarding transitioning Wyoming youth into employment, with a goal of tangible returns on investment (ROI) for businesses and organizations.

WIND is recruiting an incentivized cohort of employers to participate in this first, pilot series. This cohort will be required to attend at least 6 of the 8 sessions and will receive a stipend at the completion of the series. **Continuing education credits (SHRM and HRCI) may also be available.

To be a part of this collaboration or to receive information regarding UW ECHO for Employers, please contact us at 307-766-2938 or preETS@uwyo.edu
