Looking Forward

Please join us for an evening of questions and answers with agencies offering supportive service for individuals with disabilities. Even if you have not yet reached your last year of school, this evening is an opportunity to start planning for your future.

This year’s program will feature presentations on attending Madison College and UW Whitewater, Financial aid, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). We hope you utilize this opportunity to become aware of what support is available in the community. We look forward to seeing you and assisting you in planning your future. 

The free event is being held on November 12, 2013 at the Madison College Truax campus, room C1423. Registration starts at 5:00 p.m., Welcome and Keynote start at 6:00 p.m. followed by three breakout sessions ending just after 8:00 p.m..
