Guided Group Discovery Online Participant Workbook: New Tool for Job Seekers

June 6, 2018
Source: LEAD Center

The LEAD Center is pleased to announce the release of the Guided Group Discovery Online Participant Workbook.

The Online Participant Workbook can be completed using any browser. This user-friendly tool allows youth and adults to create a personalized Blueprint for Employment. Each participant receives a private link that allows them to add to, edit, or review their information at any time. The Workbook can also be printed out to review with counselors, teachers and others.

The purpose of Guided Group Discovery is to lay the foundation for competitive integrated employment (CIE) as a Universal Design that can benefit all job seekers. For some people, Guided Group Discovery leads to Customized Employment. For everyone, the process assists job seekers in identifying employment that would be a good fit both for them and an employer.

With the implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and ongoing systems change efforts like Employment First, formal adoption and implementation of CIE policies and practices are increasingly occurring in state and local agencies to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities and other significant barriers to employment. Discovery, which is a cornerstone of [Customized Employment], is an effective strategy for any job seeker with barriers to employment.

The Online Workbook is a companion piece to a suite of resources for Guided Group Discovery. Other materials include a Facilitator Manual, an accompanying PowerPoint slide deck (Introduction and Course), and a Participant Workbook.

A Self-Guided Discovery Facilitator’s Guide is also available and can be downloaded from the LEAD Center website. We encourage you to visit the website, where you will find extensive additional resources on Customized Employment. There also are archived webinars on Customized Employment, Guided Group Discovery and Self-Guided Discovery.
