Department on Disability Services' World Café

DDS will be hosting a World Café toward the end of July. The theme will be "Creating Pathways to Opportunities: Employment for All." We will be inviting a broad range of public and community stakeholders, including people with disabilities and their families -- and hopefully including some of you. This will be a final activity for DC's Partnerships in Employment Grant, DC Learners and Earners to support the sustainability of our joint efforts and provide guidance to enable us to move forward together. If this is something in which you'd like to participate, please let me (Rebecca Salon) know at rebecca.salon@dc.gov. We will not be able to include everyone, since space is limited and we want broad representation.

College Living Experience Students Seeking Summer Jobs/Internships
