Serving Out-of-School Youth for VR Professionals: Outreach, Engagement, and Support - 2/28/2019

Thursday, February 28, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

This webinar is designed to help vocational rehabilitation (VR) professionals better understand the composition of the out-of-school youth (OSY) population, what kinds of services are effective with this population, and what programs and networks are available to support work in this area. Presenters will review evidence-based programming for OSY, describe national networks and initiatives that provide more information about serving OSY, and suggest some ways to translate and apply this information to local VR practice. A local-level practitioner will walk through how OSY-focused programming can benefit youth with disabilities, through the lens of a young man’s journey through the program.

Participants will:

1.  Understand key characteristics of the out-of-school youth (OSY) population and what works in serving OSY;

2.  Learn from a nationally-known program about  its methods for serving OSY, including OSY  with disabilities;

3.  Learn how to tailor programs and services for OSY;

4.  Identify key referral partners for other services that OSY may need; and

5.  Identify strategies for more effectively serving OSY.
