FL DD Council & Center for Social Capital -- Customized Employment Manual

Florida

These readings on the best practices in Customized Employment (CE) reflect the use of Discovering Personal Genius/Discovery and effective techniques that “bridge” Discovery, Job Development, and ongoing supports. They lean heavily on an Economic Development approach to Job Development and how this methodology benefits the community. The manual also includes information on Community Action Teams (CATs), social capital, and the rich connections in rural communities that foster employment. And finally, the Replication Manual identifies specific barriers, resources, and real solutions used in each project site to foster change and achieve quality outcomes.
