Welcome to the Think College Employment Supports Affinity Group!
The Employment Supports Affinity Group is designed for employment support professionals in college programs for students with intellectual disability. This is an open-access special interest group for individuals who want to contribute to the discussion of ways to facilitate meaningful employment opportunities for students with ID in postsecondary education environments.
The purpose of the Affinity Group is to support members through:
- Equipping employment support professionals with an online community offering discussions on issues, strategies, and results related to employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) in higher education programs.
- Facilitating meaningful dialogue among employment stakeholders that emphasizes improving employment-related education, opportunities, and outcomes for students with ID.
- Connecting with other employment support professionals to brainstorm solutions, share resources, and build collaborative relationships.
