The NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Research and Training Center for Pathways to Positive Futures (Pathways RTC) recently published Youth Advocate to Advocate for Youth: The Next Transition, a guide for young people who have chosen to utilize their lived experience as a mechanism to advocate for positive change.

Employer Resource Guide from the Disability and Employment Community of Practice
This guide was developed to provide both public and private employers, human resource personnel, hiring managers and supervisors with relevant federal, state and local level information around their legal obligations, along with resources that can assist in identifying, paying for, and implementing effective accommodation strategies, in hiring and/or retaining qualified employees who experience a disability.
The Disability and Employment Community of Practice is an online learning destination for
public workforce system staff and partners, jobseekers, community-based organizations, grantees, and the business sector, who provide services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment. It is a "one-stop-shop" venue for workforce practitioners to find or share high quality information about how to better provide integrated, seamless, and accessible services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment.
