Workplace Accommodations for Transition-age Youth
PACER CENTERRead More
Check out PACER Center Webinar that focuses on workplace accommodations, including what counts as an accommodation and how to ask for one, what to so when an employer asks for more information, and what to do if an employer says no.
At HDS our goal is to facilitate opportunities that may be available by leveraging education, experience and skills learned by participants with available business resource. The diversity of this population can provide different paths to embark on, one of them being finding a job after high school and steering away from the traditional (college) higher education.
