2019 Annual Veterans Conference

End-Dependence Kansas (EDK)

The Mission of the End-Dependence program is to empower Kansans with disabilities to achieve self-reliance through competitive, integrated employment. The Kansas WorkforceONE End-Dependence Program utilizes the Progressive Employment model with a focus on serving persons with disabilities who are exiting Kansas Correctional facilities.  As a contracting provider for Vocational Rehabilitation, we are charged with implementing this model in our area. The Vermont Progressive Employment Model is a strategy for populations that have little or no work history, low skill levels, and other barriers to employment, such as corrections.  A key principle of the model is that everyone is ready for something which eliminates the construct of candidates needing to be "job ready".  Service options through this model include short-term work experiences, practice interviews, company tours, job shadowing, OJT, and possible partnerships with temporary employment agencies.   

Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

As a result of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the Department for Children and Families recently launched a program called Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS), to further its efforts to help Kansans with disabilities gain meaningful employment. Pre-ETS services are designed to help youth with disabilities get an early start at job exploration, assist students with disabilities in making the transition from secondary to post-secondary education/training and to empower them to realize their full potential.   In order to implement paid work-based learning experiences, Rehabilitation Services has established partnerships which include Kansas WorkforceONE.  These partnerships, which leverage the expertise of the workforce centers and the Pre-ETS program services, implements a wrap-around approach to assist youth with disabilities in gaining work experience.
