One of the best ways for families, teachers, legislators, employers and other stakeholders to appreciate how integrated employment can work for people with disabilities is to see real life examples of it happening.  Below are the employment stories of youth who have participated in one of the 12 Let’s Get to Work high school pilot sites.  As the schools begin to experience more and more success with finding students jobs in their interest areas around their communities, project staff will be capturing those stories in a variety of ways. Please check back often for new stories!
