Family Employment Awareness Training Begins October 20

Do you ever wish there was one training for parents and families that provided thorough information about how their children can obtain competitive employment aligned with their interests? Wouldn’t it be great if this training also provided extensive information about supported/customized employment, employer and employee supports, benefits, work incentives, and savings? How awesome would it be if this training included specific information related to Indiana about all of these topics? And if it was also FREE?

Well, wish no more. Registration is open for Family Employment Awareness Training (FEAT). This fall, FEAT goes online with a series of webinars providing extensive information about employment and benefits to young adults, transition-age students, and their supporters.
