Family Advocate Positions Available

By Employment Network, 2016-02-11

Wisconsin PROMISE, a project of the Wisconsin Department for Workforce Development (DWD), aims to foster improved health, education and post-secondary outcomes for families and teenage youth with disabilities who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  Enrolled families have access to a number of trainings and services, including a training for families on transition and employment planning basics.  The Waisman Center at UW-Madison is partnering with the project to help deliver this transition and employment training by developing a network of family advocates across the state to work with identified families.  The Family Advocates will connect with families, in their homes or in the community, to share information about the transition process and employment planning using the already-developed training.  Advocates may also assist with navigating service systems as needed.  In addition, the Family Advocates will strive to organize small learning communities for local families to meet and share their experiences.  Ideally, Family Advocates will be individuals with personal, or professional, experience with disability and public support systems.  If you know people who might be interested in these positions, please share this with them.  There are 10 positions located in various regions around the state.  Individuals will telecommute and will travel regularly within their region.  See links to the position postings below.  When you click on the link, you’ll see a Job Summary and then if you click on “Position Description” you will see more details of the position.  The deadline for applying is February 23, 2016
