“Pre-Employment Services Being Offered to Youth with Disabilities “

Kansas

~~“As a result of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, DCF recently launched a new program, Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS), to further its efforts to help Kansans with disabilities gain meaningful employment. Pre-ETS was first launched in FY 2017, and its services are designed to help youth with disabilities get an early start at job exploration, assist students with disabilities in making the transition from secondary to post-secondary education/training and to empower them to realize their full potential.  

While many services are offered within Pre-ETS, Rehabilitation Services Director Michael Donnelly says that the program emphasizes the paid, work-based learning experiences”
