Below is information about a grant funded program offered at no cost to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who want to pursue employment in the community. Our program starts with Job Discovery classes to help individuals identify their strengths, preferences, conditions and support needs. I am sharing this information with you in hopes that you will help us reach a greater target audience of participants for the program. Thank you for your consideration and sharing information with the individuals you serve.
Attached you will find a brochure with September & October dates for the next round of “Get HIRED!” Job Discovery classes. “Get HIRED!” is a community employment program to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, reach their employment dreams. This is a grant funded program that will run through October 2019.
Classes are offered on Mondays evenings from 6:00PM-7:30PM. We highly encourage recent high-school graduates to consider attending the day time classes if they are not yet participating in employment, volunteer or day service activities.
We hope you will consider joining us at our next session!
Classes meet on the dates listed in the brochure and are held in our office at 7600 W 75th Street, Overland Park, KS 66204
