SPEAKERS


DEBBIE TELSEY – Vocational Program Director and Co-Founder

SANDY QUINTER - Director of Business Development - I Can Living & Learning Center


I Can Living and Learning Center's Employment Program provides an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to secure suitable employment. The Employment Specialists help participants learn how to do the following: identify an employment goal, properly complete an employment application, prepare a resume, prepare for an interview, utilize appropriate job search methods and, most importantly, help maintain employment. ICAN provides follow-up services and also provide post employment services to those with significant disabilities.

ICAN's approach is to negotiate career/vocational options for vocationally disadvantaged persons. The organization achieves this by creating a partnership between local employers and I Can Living and Learning Center Vocational Coaches. Partnerships are formed by utilizing methods in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, counseling, marketing and sales. The Employment Specialist is dedicated to meeting the needs of participants who are looking for meaningful jobs in community settings and the employers who look for trained, reliable, and capable employees.

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because he/she has a disability.
