Programs That Work Producing People at Work: Annual Report of the President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, Fiscal Year 1999.
President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, Washington, DC.
This report from the President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, a federal agency that coordinates and promotes public and private efforts to enhance the employment of people with disabilities, describes committee activities during Fiscal Year 1999 (October 1, 1998- September 30, 1999). The first part of the report profiles six employment programs: (1) the Business Leadership Network; (2) the Workforce Recruitment Programs; (3) the High School/High Tech Program; (4) Project EMPLOY; (5) the Job Accommodation Network; and (6) a database for assisting in the development and financing of new businesses. The second part of the report discusses activities that seek to change negative attitudes and misconceptions about the employability of individuals with disabilities, to prepare future employees for the world of work, and to examine specific segments of the disability community that are experiencing higher rates of unemployment than the community as a whole. Educational kits, media outreach efforts, youth leadership and veteran forums, and international activities are described. The report includes a map illustrating the location of the programs and a list of committee members. (CR)
