Career Mentoring Fair at UVM
Hello Supported Employment Providers,
As part of
National Disability Mentoring Day
(http://www.dmd-aapd.org/index.html), we are hosting a Career
Mentoring Fair at the University of Vermont. This will also be
part of Deaf & Disability Awareness Month at UVM
The purpose of
the day is to raise awareness of disability issues, especially in
terms of employment. The university and general community are
invited to come and learn about the untapped labor force of people
We are inviting local agencies and schools to set up a table to inform
visitors about their services and potential employees. We will
also be encouraging UVM visitors to sign up as Career Mentors.
Mentorship opportunities can include group tours, job shadowing, or
hands-on work trials.
We will be offering free coffee and breakfast to visitors and will be
showing various videos on the big screens. It promises to be a
very informative day! Please consider joining us and spreading
the word and networking with the University of Vermont.
form is attached as a Word Document. If you are unable to open
it please let me know and I'll send it in a different format.
Schools and agencies in the greater Chittenden County area are
encouraged to participate. This promises to be a great way for
mentorship, and hopefully employment opportunities, within the
University of Vermont.
The cost of the
event is $25.00 per table to cover our costs. If you have any
