Creative Workforce Solutions Conference: Meet Horace Brown of Vocational Rehabilitation
A virtual conference to promote special needs focused entrepreneurship and social enterprises.
Florida’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) established a goal to increase Self Employment outcomes. Research indicated that the overall number of Self-Employment outcomes were low, and that outcomes were particularly limited for individuals experiencing more complex disabilities.
I started with VR as a VR Counselor and was promoted through the years to Consultant. I specialized working with our deaf and hard of hearing customers, and also worked with post-secondary students, serving as a liaison to Florida State university, Tallahassee Community College, Florida A&M and general adult customers.
I hold a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and a life-long learner and mentor to new counselors. In my current role, I serve as the program administrator for general adult employment programs and services which includes: Self-Employment, On-the-Job Training, Pre-Placement Training, and inclusive post-secondary education.
What will I learn during this presentation?
This presentation will consist of an overview of the self-employment program with Florida's Vocational Rehabilitation.
