Traveling the Road to Self-Employment
Innovation and technology have opened up new avenues to self-employment. However, beginning a self-employment venture can be overwhelming.
IIDC’s Center on Community Living and Careers is offering an in-depth, 2-day informational workshop this month in Indianapolis, which will feature presentations from Griffin-Hammis Inc., national experts in the field of employment for people with disabilities. During The Road to Self-Employment in Indianapolis on September 24-25, participants will learn about business plans, support systems, marketing, financing, and more. People with disabilities, family members, caregivers, employment professionals, Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation staff, and WorkOne staff are encouraged to attend.
Please share the Road to Self-Employment flyers with interested individuals and families you support! Sponsored by the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, the workshop is free but registration is required.
Find information about additional self-employment training on the CCLC Self-Employment webpage, which also features handouts and self-employment resources to support young adults considering this customized employment option.
