Transition from School to Work
The Massachusetts Partnership for Transition to Employment logo
The Massachusetts Partnership for Transition to Employment
  (MPTE) is a systems-change project of the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. The project is designed to improve employment outcomes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities transitioning from school to adult life.
 
 


The Arc of MA, in partnership with the MPTE, is hosting two upcoming webinars on employment:
 
When: Wednesday, October 10, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In Case You Missed It
Why do our conversations about employment for people with disabilities start with protecting Social Security benefits? We hosted a webinar,  Financial Wellbeing: Reframing the Benefits Conversation about shifting the conversation about benefits to help people you support and their families consider employment options differently.
