ISDB Students Get Help Looking For Work
Gooding, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) A new grant from the US Department of Labor will help youth with disabilities move into Idaho's workforce.
Students at the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind took part in a workshop. The Disability Employment Initiative will work with existing state organizations to help students from ages 14 to 24 choose careers and get jobs.
Gordon Graff from the Idaho Department of Labor says, "They can find career information, to do workshops to help them on job search, how to interview. Basically everything you need to know to enter the world of work."
The Idaho Department of Labor's "Navigators" program is paying for a Disability Resource Coordinator in four Idaho cities. One of those towns is Twin Falls.
To find out about job opportunities for youth with disabilities, contact your local Department of Labor office.
