Common Thread: How WIOA includes us all

Description

The Workforce Innovations Opportunity Act (W.I.O.A) was signed into law by President Obama in 2014 in efforts of boosting the workforce for all individuals by helping job seekers access post-secondary education opportunities, employment ventures, and various supportive services. This legislation has been vital for individuals and students with disabilities as it has recognized the employment and educational deficits for this population and strategically put emphasis on actions to be taken to correct this issue. This round-table discussion will facilitate conversations regarding the role of higher education entities in the transition of students with disabilities, the importance of collaboration with community agencies to facilitate effective transitions for students with disabilities, as well as specific W.I.O.A activities occurring within Wilmington, N.C. Please join us as we share how all of us are included within this “Common Thread.” Scott Levine and Scott Crouch
