August 29, 2018
Source: LEAD Center, WINTAC and Southeast ADA Center

The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC), the Southeast ADA Center, and LEAD Center are pleased to announce our newly formed partnership. We are teaming up to grow the Career Pathways Community of Practice (CoP) and bring together key stakeholders making career pathway programs successful for individuals with disabilities - specifically, Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies, American Job Centers, and Higher Education. As we know, these partnerships are vital to expanding our learning opportunities and networking with each other.

WINTAC will continue its excellent work of engaging State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies (SVRAs) who are just beginning their career pathways work as well as learning from the SVRAs with well-established career pathways models. Through its new partnership with LEAD Center and the Southeast ADA Center, WINTAC will also engage partners such as community colleges, universities, workforce centers, and inclusive higher education programs. We will be able to facilitate conversations across the vast continuum of career pathways in order meet the requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and meet the needs of people with disabilities who are seeking employment or want to become entrepreneurs.
