You are receiving this email from the newly formed Transformers Coalition. Our goal is to transform access and awareness of services for youth and young adults with disabilities transitioning to gainful employment. We will be conducting Transition to Employment Town Halls across Kansas collecting information to identify successes and challenges youth and young adults with disabilities experience during the transition to employment.
Information from town hall meetings will be used to prepare a statewide resource guide and to design sessions for a future-dated Kansas Transition Conference.
Please help spread the word out about the Transition to Employment Town Hall meetings by sharing the attached important announcement on your website or listserv and distributing to youth, young adults, parents, family members, educators, providers, and other professionals.
^Members of the Transformers Coalition: Amerigroup Kansas, Autism Speaks, Cooper Consulting, Families Together, Great Plains ADA Center, Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities, Kansas Dept. of Commerce, Kansas Dept. of Education, Kansas Dept. of Health & Environment, Kansas Rehabilitation Services, KANSASWORKS, Kansas Youth Empowerment Academy, Prairie Independent Living Resource Center, SILCK, Sunflower/Life Share and United Health Care.
