KentuckyWorks – YOUTH & FAMILY ENGAGEMENT COMMUNITY CONVERSATION

KentuckyWorks Family and Youth Engagement Community Conversation

Join the conversation on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 for youth with intellectual disabilities, families, and professionals to discuss what families and youth need to prepare for the world of work! They need to hear your voices, including parents of younger and older students with disabilities and youth with more significant needs. Help them figure out how to make employment a possibility for everyone!

They want youth with the intellectual disabilities and their families to come talk with them about the resources and support they need to prepare for and find meaningful work, and teachers and professionals to share the valued resources they have found. Please register below to attend KentuckyWorks Family Engagement Community Conversation on Tuesday, July 17 from 10am-12pm at KCTCS: 300 N Main St. Versailles, KY with national expert, Sean Roy, from the YES! Center and Dr. Harold Kleinert from HDI.

People with disabilities have significant skills and talents to contribute to the world, and this Community Conversation is a wonderful opportunity for youth and family members to identify the barriers to employment, find solutions along with professionals, and learn more about what we can all do to make meaningful employment a reality. As the mom of an 18 year-old with Down syndrome and a member of the KentuckyWorks team, this issue is near to my heart as we look for ways to make sure that youth with intellectual disabilities, the parents of younger and older students, and the professionals in our lives have this vision that everyone has inherent value and the ability to contribute to their communities, and it is our responsibility to work together to unleash that potential. —Stephanie Meredith
