Participants Needed for CDS (HI UCEDD) Employable Project Pilot Study

April 25, 2013

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Center on Disability Studies (HI UCEDD) is seeking pilot study participants for  "EmployAble: A World without Barriers," a model virtual employment center for people with disabilities.

EmployAble uses the virtual world platform Second Life to provide training, networking, mentoring and employment resources for people with disabilities and employers.

EmployAble staff are recruiting persons with disabilities over the age of 18 to participate in a three month pilot study to evaluate the EmployAble Virtual Employment Orientation, Resource, Support, and Training Center site content, features, and use. We are especially interested in reaching out to veterans and those with Traumatic Brain Injuries. However, other individuals with disabilities may also participate.

For more information about participation, please email  [email protected] or fill out a participant screening and pre-survey at www.cds.hawaii.edu/employable. More information about the project can also be found on the website.

EmployAble is funded by the Kessler Foundation (www.kesslerfoundation.org) and is a project of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Center on Disability Studies (www.cds.hawaii.edu).
