Did you know that, by completing these programs, your students can earn a job certification to enter the workforce? The 6th annual DC3C Next Steps Career Exploration Conference (Next Steps) will be held virtually on Thursday, December 2nd. Next Steps is an annual DC Special Education Cooprative event geared towards DC high school students with disabilities who are ages 14-21. During the duration of the week, students will have the opportunity to explore career options through on-demand sessions from local educational and training vendors.
