VIUCEDD is happy to announce a partnership with the Virgin Islands Department of Labor to employ people with disabilities. This disability employment project will be informed by the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (the science of changing behavior) and other best practice principles related to disability employment. Candidates of people with disabilities on each of the main islands who will be paired up with a job coach and a preselected employer. The candidates will be trained in the specific skills they need in order to be successful on the worksite they have selected and been assigned to. Our partner at The Department of Human Services Division of Disabilities and Rehabilitation Services will be a key agency helping to effectuate this disability employment project. Felecia Blyden and her awesome team members on St. Thomas and St. Croix will be working together to help select and place candidates for employment as well as by providing job coaches. This disability employment project will feature monthly trainings beginning in June 2016 on the islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix. The two sets of monthly trainings will feature training for people with disabilities seeking employment as well as training for employers wishing to employ people with disabilities. The result of this employment intervention pilot program will be used to create new and better disability employment projects in the U.S. Virgin Islands, throughout the Caribbean and the U.S. mainland and around the world. “The VIDOL is extremely excited about this initiative”, says Arah C. Lockhart, Director of Workforce Development. “We look forward to this partnership and the ensuing collaboration which will certainly increase employment opportunities and outcomes for persons with disabilities” - This project is managed up by VIUCEDD Associate Director, Dr. Kimberly Mills.
