2011 TASH Employment for Youth in Transition Live Streaming Virtual Conference

November 30 & December 1, 2011

Southeast TACE and partners hosted the highly acclaimed national “Employment for Youth in Transition”conference in conjunction with the TASH National Conference, “No Excuses”, Nov. 30 – Dec. 1 in Atlanta. This conference for disability community professionals and advocates from across the country was also attended by an unprecedented number of federal and state vocational rehabilitation (VR) leaders attracted by its strong content and field of highly respected presenters. TACE’s team not only delivered a high caliber in-person event but also orchestrated live streaming to 250 participants who were unable to attend, underwriting free remote access for all VR partners from the southeast states.

Lynnae Ruttledge, commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration, and Melody Musgrove, associate commissioner of the Office of Special Education Programs, kicked off a program that featured best practices in integrated employment for young people perceived to be the most challenging to serve. National experts, seasoned practitioners, and business community representatives presented on topics ranging from multi-agency funding strategies and asset development to employment-first strategies and employer perspectives. Southeast TACE sponsored presentations by Resource Network members Norciva Shumpert, Abby Cooper, and Amy Dwyre. The conference set a new standard in bringing the VR community together with practitioners, advocates, and employers to build a new and improved network serving youth with the most significant disabilities.
