    Date/Time [EST]:

    Description 

    Colorado Department of Vocational Rehabilitation is aligning and enhancing collaborations with our core WIOA partners, including our Workforce Center business services teams and sector initiatives, to leverage opportunities with businesses and create better opportunities for our clients.  Along with this initiative, we are systematically and sustainably training all staff in the use of labor market information and the Career Index Plus. This will allow our agency to tie IPE goals more directly to LMI, to help clients and counselors understand current employment opportunities and future business needs. VR clients represent a talent pipeline for business, and our goal is to bring business and clients closer together.

    Description 

    Maine VR has tried different approaches to strengthening the capacity of its Community Rehabilitation Provider (CRP) system with the primary goal of providing consistent statewide access to quality employment services for VR clients. When outcomes fell short of expectations, Maine worked with the JD-VRTAC to analyze its data and explore options that other states have tried with CRPs. In this webinar, Christine Robinson and Libby Stone-Sterling will discuss Maine’s efforts and lessons learned from their JD-VRTAC project.
