      The World Institute on Disability invites students & their circle of support to participate in a focus group discussion about youth with disabilities and their benefits. We are redesigning our school and work website calculator (www.db101.org). We want input! Tell us your concerns about life planning and addressing gaps in information when seeking employment for yourself or someone you know.

      Focus groups (FG) will take about 2 hours, and have a maximum of 8 participants in each focus groups, ages 16-28 and their circle of support. This will take place on February 18 & 19 at the World Institute on Disability.

      Focus Group Blocks & Time:
      World Institute on Disability
      510 16th St. 2nd Fl.
      Oakland, CA 94612

      We encourage youth and their circle of support from all backgrounds and different types of disability to participate. We are especially seeking those who are determined by Social Security as disabled, but encourage those who are not determined to still contact us. We want to ensure that when redesigning our calculator we have an inclusive process.
