Y-TAC LEARNING LAB


IDENTIFYING AND REENGAGING OUT-OF-SCHOOL YOUTH WITH DISABILITIES: INCREASING EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION OUTCOMES


The federal Youth Technical Assistance Center (Y-TAC) is offering a day-long "learning lab" on Friday, May 31st, as part of the All Youth Working Forum. Focusing on identifying and reengaging opportunity youth with disabilities, this is an opportunity for practitioners across disciplines to share experiential knowledge and innovative practices. There will be a strong youth presence throughout the day, which will be structured in a learning lab format that emphasizes learning, sharing, and planning. The intent of this learning lab is for participants to develop an action plan to implement change in their home communities. If you are interested in attending, please check the box during registration.
