Join us for Job-ING this Fall

Job Information and Networking Group, Job-ING for short, is a monthly get together for young people with intellectual disabilities and their family members to learn more about employment options.   Participants will learn about job search strategies that are effective for people with disabilities, how to access resources, and meet local experts who can help with your job search.

This September, we'll be kicking off groups in Albuquerque, Anthony and Farmington.  If you're interested in joining us, contact Rebecca Roybal at or 505-925-0898.
