Open Doors for Multicultural Families and STAR Center: Youth Job Readiness Training

Open Doors for Multicultural Families and the STAR Center partnered to create a Youth Job Readiness Training program. This program is a multicultural integrative approach to youth job readiness training for low-income families with youth with disabilities. All participants are English language learners enrolled in special education in Seattle Schools. 20 youth are enrolled in this valuable program, which covers workplace expectations, hygiene, conflict resolution, and appropriate communication in the work place and the use of computers and assistive technology.

Larry Wisdom, a lab volunteer at the Denny Terrace Computer Lab, created a video highlighting the the participants and their accomplishments. You can access it on his YouTube page here: http://youtu.be/WO6SqNT74Ok
