Topical Webinar: Part Two of a Five-Part Series on the Transition to Employment for Youth Receiving SSI
This webinar will showcase viable employment services and pre-employment transition services for youth recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The services are designed to foster collaboration between partners and engage businesses, leading to improved employment outcomes. Attendees will learn about apprenticeship and other employment models and how these models can be applied in their states to better prepare recipients of youth SSI for competitive careers. This webinar is the second in a five-part series for the SSI Youth Recipient and Employment Transition Formative Research Project. Through this project, ODEP is building the knowledge base about SSI youth recipients and the factors that influence their successful transition to sustained, gainful employment.
