Students spend summer exploring career options

 

Local students are spending the summer exploring different career options by participating in work experience/career exploration programs through Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD).

 

LCBDD Director of Employment Supports Holly Shellogg described the programs as being designed to help youth think about employment, and the kind of jobs they might enjoy, long before they graduate from high school. We thought this was a great chance to see more community partnerships at work, so recently we took a peek as four local students navigate their work experience/career exploration programs. Kudos and a big thank you to LCBDD staff member Samantha Keefe for taking some great photos!
