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.
