 Fairfax County Disability Mentoring Day

Fairfax County Government will host students and job seekers with disabilities in a county program that orients job seekers to careers in government and teaches job-searching skills on October 20, 2010.

The program was sponsored by the Fairfax Area Disability Services Board and the Department of Family Services’ Disability Services Planning and Development program.

Disability Mentoring Day is a national program held annually on the third Wednesday of October. Sponsored nationally by the American Association of People with Disabilities, the program began in 1999 to bring greater awareness and national attention to employment opportunities for people with disabilities. This year, over 20,000 students and jobseekers with disabilities across the country, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in 24 countries are participating.
