Explore-Prepare-Act was developed in response to concerns raised by self-advocates who were not getting the help they needed to find a job that they wanted. Individuals wanted to better understand the process of finding a job so that they could take action themselves and better access supports that would help them achieve their goals.

Explore-Prepare-Act consists of a video as well as a training curriculum that have been developed by self advocates in partnership with the Institute for Community Inclusion, the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services and the Massachusetts Advocates Standing Strong.

Trainings are held throughout the state. For a current list or to schedule a training, please refer to the website: https://ma-advocates.org/

Learn the basic steps involved in finding a job, including the types of available support. Training is presented by self-advocates for self-advocates.

Location: Boston, MA

Length of program: One 3 hour session

Maximum number in class: sessions are limited to 10 self-advocates, but a support staff is also welcome to attend for each attendee.
