PACER Center workshop in Faribault will focus on transitioning to employment for youth with disabilities

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “Transitioning to Employment,” a free workshop for parents of youth with disabilities and for professionals. It will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2 at Rice County Government Services, 320 Third St. N.W., Faribault.

Planning for employment is an important step in preparing a young adult with a disability for life after high school. This workshop will provide information on career exploration and planning.
