Employment: By Youth, For Youth

This publication was co-written by members of the Youth Action Council on Transition (YouthACT), Jennifer Thomas, and Nathan Cunningham. YouthACT is a national initiative to get more youth with disabilities and their allies involved as leaders who partner with adults and organizations to improve opportunities for youth to succeed in life. YouthACT is led by the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) at the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) with funding from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). This publication gives practical examples on how to find and maintain employment, including writing resumes, preparing for interviews, and finding supports.
