The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation Transition and Adult team at UM-NSU CARD and Best Buddies Transition partnered to co-facilitate the Teen Workshop: Why Work? series. The workshop is designed to assist High School aged students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in bridging the gap between school-based knowledge and workplace readiness. The 6 session in-person workshops prepared participants to start setting their vocational goals through informational sessions, employment-based educational training, and self-advocacy training. This presentation will share the key components of the program, which focuses on career exploration and future planning.
