Career Services for Community College Students

Two U.S. Department of Labor demonstration model grants focused on supporting students with disabilities who are seeking employment. These projects demonstrated that coordinated, customized supports can benefit students with disabilities in securing employment after completing their formal education. Collaboration among college disability services, career services and community rehabilitation resources were key project components. “The projects also fostered student ownership of the process by encouraging them to identify their own work-based learning opportunities.”  Read more about the demonstration program on the Center for Advancing Policy on Employment for Youth (CAPE-Youth) website.
