Avoiding the Volunteer Trap: Labor Rules and Regulations for Unpaid Work Experiences 

Unpaid Work experiences can provide a powerful mechanism for discovering an individual’s strengths, skills and interests.  In order to provide the best experiences, there are regulations surrounding unpaid work and strategies to put into practice to assure that the experience is first and foremost of benefit to the individual with disabilities. Please join us for our next Webinar to hear from Wise's Susan Harrell and Jim Corey will provide information and insight about:

  • The Federal and State Regulations related to unpaid work, volunteering and internships
  • Key considerations and strategies to allow the individual an opportunity to learn about their interests, strengths and skills, and to build their portfolio and resume for paid work. 
  • Stories and scenarios about how work experiences have been used well and poorly and how to avoid common pitfalls of the Volunteer Trap.
