Getting Ready for Opportunities in Work (G.R.O.W.)


Getting Ready for opportunities in Work (G.R.O.W.) is a five-week introduction to employment initiative for students living with a disability aged 14-22. The program takes a hands-on approach through collaboration with local, community partners and employers to expand students’ understanding of the workforce. This is achieved through one-on-one job training, workshops on self-advocacy, tours of local workplaces and more. Breakfast and lunch is provided. For more information about G.R.O.W., please contact your local Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (GVRA) office or email Monique Bell at monique.bell@bobbydodd.org.
