Show Me Careers: Missouri's Transition-to-Employment Collaborative
Partnerships in Employment Systems Change Grant
This project will address the needs of youth and young adults ages 16–30 with developmental and intellectual disabilities (I/DD) who are in the process of transitioning from secondary or post-secondary education settings to community employment. To address this need, the overall goal of this project is “to scale up and sustain evidence-based practices in Missouri that support seamless transition to integrated employment.” A Leadership Consortium of states agencies (Missouri Division of DD, Missouri Office of Special Education, Missouri Office of Special Education, Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation), the Missouri Planning Council for DD, the Missouri Center for Excellence in DD, and Missouri People First will support a statewide structure through which to demonstrate evidence-based practices, develop needed policies and practices, and enhance statewide collaborations.
