> Youth with Disabilities Find Path to Employment Through National Service
> The job market for young job seekers is always challenging but especially so in a recovering economy. A letter from the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) outlines several of the avenues -- including service-learning and volunteering -- that can be used to release the untapped potential of all youth, including those with disabilities. 
> By opening doors to employment through volunteer and national service programs, youth and youth with disabilities will gain access to valuable job experiences and develop a network of contacts that can lead to employment later. CNCS research has found connections between volunteering and employment, including a 27 percent higher likelihood for volunteers finding work than non-volunteers.
> Guidance in the memo from the Department of Labor also addresses concerns about participation in CNCS programs such as AmeriCorps that provide a stipend, which may ease fears that national service would adversely affect those who receive Social Security benefits and their families. 
> Learn more about how youth with disabilities can improve their employment prospects by reading the full text of the memo and viewing helpful resources here.
