Happy Summer!

This month we are highlighting resources and services that assist two groups of individualsadult ex-offenders and youth with disabilitiesthat can succeed in the world of work with assistance and support.

We are also pleased to announce a new communitythe Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers.  On this site, you will find resources related to the Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers (TAA) Program, including access to past and upcoming technical assistance offerings, and promising practices from your peers.


Reentry for Adults Resources

Finding employment with a criminal record is not easy.  For justice involved youth and adults, the employment landscape includes background checks, that can be overshadowed by probation or parole, housing concerns, limited or inadequate education and job skills, and mental health issues.  However, there are programs and initiatives out there through the public workforce system and our partners to assist with the process Workforce GPS’s Reentry Employment Opportunities offers practitioners new ideas and tools to do the invaluable work of changing lives and renewing futures of former offenders.  In addition, to this site, we have gathered a list of resources, webinars and organizations that focus on providing assistance to adults re-entering the workforce.


Youth with Disabilities

Summer is a great season for youth and young adults to learn new skills outside of the classroom.  For youth with disabilities and their families, transitioning into adulthood requires more careful planning.   These resource links support workforce professionals and others to help ensure that youth with disabilities and their families have access to services that can facilitate a seamless transition during the formative years of development.
