LEAD Center partners with NOND

The LEAD Center mission is to advance sustainable individual and systems level change that results in improved, competitive integrated employment and economic self- sufficiency outcomes for individuals across the spectrum of disability. The LEAD Center seeks effective partnerships in the public workforce system including state workforce agencies, state and local workforce boards, and representatives of other systems of service delivery and supports to youth and working age adults with disabilities.

During the next five years,
LEAD Center will work with partners to:
  • Improve effective participation of people with disabilities in the workforce development system;
  • Improve coordination and collaboration between state and local workforce development agencies and other major systems of service and supports for people with disabilities;
  • Increase knowledge and understanding about effective stay at work and return to work strategies for the mature worker; and,
  • Build the availability of financial capability supports and services to compliment other services available within American Job Centers.
