Traveling the Road to Self-Employment

Innovation and technology have opened up new avenues to self-employment. However, beginning a self-employment venture can be overwhelming.

If you have a student who has expressed interest in self-employment, please share the Self-Employment Information and Training webpage, which features handouts on self-employment and resources to support young adults considering this customized employment option.

In addition, the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community’s Center on Community Living and Careers is offering an in-depth, 2-day informational workshop delivered by Griffin Hammis in Indianapolis. At this workshop, The Road to Self-Employment on September 24-25, participants will learn about business plans, support systems, marketing, financing, and more.

This two-day workshop, sponsored by the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, is free, but registration is required. For more information and to register, see the Road to Self-Employment flyer.
