This webinar will focus on three examples of colleges that have used a host of innovative, promising strategies to support adult students.
Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) has evolved as a dynamic partner in developing and implementing customized training programs with community colleges and businesses that actively engage job-seekers with disabilities. Partnerships with community colleges, businesses, and training providers help prepare VR clients for competitive employment in high-demand industries.
