Session Description

The first part of this episode will provide an overview of the WIOA regulations and Discovery. Discovery is a process for learning a person’s interests, strongest contributions, and conditions for success, and provides the foundation for all person-centered, person-directed plans, as required by WIOA. We will examine alternatives to standard interview processes such as visual resumes and strength-based presentations. In the second part, we will learn multiple ways to use the Trajectory of Charting the LifeCourse Framework to find the right career and how Kevin uses this tool to guide his career planning and create a vision for a meaningful life.

A recording will be made available for registrants.
