Young people benefit from having opportunities to learn about working, to develop the skills they need to succeed in employment and build self-efficacy and self-belief. Where this is done well there are benefits for the individual in increasing their employability, for employers in helping them recruit staff who have the skills that they need and for communities in reducing unemployment and supporting young people to make good choices about training and employment.

What Up, What Up, What Up!!! In today’s episode, we discuss the importance of MENTORSHIP for youth and their SUCCESS. In this episode, the squad is accompanied by 17-year-old Ian Brock, an impressive young man who believes he can change the world through inspiration, entrepreneurship, and computer science in his company Dream Hustle Code. Growing up in Chicago, his vision for the future was all about making it to the NBA. However, the trajectory of his life was forever changed when he saw two-time NBA champ, Chris Bosh, talking about learning how to code, and his love for coding. Hearing from somebody who looked like him and was one of his favorite basketball players was what got him hooked on learning how to code. That encounter planted a seed in Ian that put him on a trajectory to impart confidence and interest in computer science and technology to Black and Brown youth in his company, Dream Hustle Code. Be prepared to be inspired and motivated to harness the power of mentorship in your community. Get your pen & pad, and get ready for class! Together, we’re going to make the rest of your career, the best of your career.

What is the Ticket to Work Program? View an introduction to the Ticket to Work Program in American Sign Language (ASL) (Opens a new window) Social Security's Ticket to Work Program supports career development for Social Security disability beneficiaries age 18 through 64 who want to work. The Ticket Program is free and voluntary. The Ticket Program helps people with disabilities progress toward financial independence. The Ticket Program is a good fit for people who want to improve their earning potential and are committed to preparing for long-term success in the workforce. This program offers beneficiaries with disabilities access to meaningful employment with the assistance of Ticket to Work employment service providers called Employment Networks. If you are ready to go to work, there are people ready and waiting to help you! The career development services and support you need are unique to you. The Ticket Program can connect you with the right mix of free employment support services and approved service providers that best fit your needs. The Ticket Program and other Work Incentives allow you to keep your benefits while you explore employment, receive vocational rehabilitation services and gain work experience. Your cash benefits and Medicaid or Medicare often continue throughout your transition to work, and there are protections in place to help you return to benefits, if you are unable to continue working due to your disability. Why Ticket to Work? In determining your eligibility for benefits, Social Security found that you could not earn enough money to support yourself. But with the right opportunities and supports, many people can earn a higher standard of living by going to work and leaving the benefit rolls. The Ticket Program can help you find your path to work. While earning a living through employment is not for everyone, it may be right for you. The rewards far outweigh the risks. Take the time to learn about the employment services and supports Social Security offers beneficiaries with disabilities through the Ticket to Work Program. You may be surprised! We are here to help you learn more and start on your journey to financial independence. Find out How it Works OR Learn more about the Ticket to Work on the Path to Work: Ticket to Work Learn More

Persons with disabilities want the opportunity to pursue a career of their own choosing but have an unemployment rate that is two time higher than average, not counting individuals who become discouraged and stop actively seeking work. At the same time, businesses that value a diverse work force lag behind when it comes to disability inclusion. They want better access to candidates with disabilities. That’s why AbilityLinks, a first of its kind website for persons with disabilities, was launched in 2001. AbilityLinks helps persons with disabilities find jobs. It is a well-established and valued part of the disability and business community, especially in the Chicago area. AbilityLinks connects a dynamic talent pool of applicants with disabilities to a network of employers that value disability inclusion. Each member company adds a company page to help others learn more about their business. The jobs the company posts appear on the page. Companies receive applications and can search resumes. Qualified candidates with disabilities post resumes and apply for jobs. Over 700 AbilityLinks job seekers have reported finding employment. A skilled talent pool and wide range of businesses Applicant skills, experience, and background range from entry level to administrative, technical, professional and managerial. Member companies represent a wide range of industries, occupation types and business size. A robust pool of community partners Education, advocacy and job programs, and disability owned businesses, are all part of the AbilityLinks community. Each of these organizations creates a member page on AbilityLinks.org that describes the organization and how it can help businesses and job seekers.

Nick talks about the importance of parenting in early childhood and it's significance in overcoming hopelessness. Willpower is a driving force for making our big dreams come true, but if we don't get a miracle in life, we can always be a miracle to someone else. Nick Vujicic was born in Australia to a Serbian immigrant family, with a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. Most of his childhood he struggled with depression, and after a suicide attempt he decided to concentrate on what he did have instead on what he didn't. He realized that his life story inspires many people. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
