MO Partnerships in Employment - "Show Me Careers"


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Systems-Change Funding
Show Me Careers: This project will address the needs of youth and young adults ages 16 to 30 with developmental and intellectual disabilities (DD/ID) who are in the process of transitioning from secondary or post-secondary education settings to community employment. The project’s goal is to scale up and sustain evidence-based practices in Missouri that support seamless transitions to integrated employment. A Leadership Consortium of state agencies…will support a statewide structure to demonstrate evidence-based practices, develop needed policies and practices, and enhance statewide collaborations.
Objectives are designed to achieve this goal include: building cross system and agency collaborations designed to exchange and transfer knowledge and effective practices between partners; review and advocate for changes to collaborative funding options, policies, and 
procedures that support broader implementation of the effective practices demonstrated within communities; develop statewide capacity to scale up demonstrations through training, dissemination and broader
implementation; and evaluate results and sustain the scaled-up practices.
