Join us for Job-A-Palooza 2022 – October 19th!

We are thrilled to announce that Job-A-Palooza will be back IN-PERSON this fall! Thanks to the Jack Hopkins Social Services Committee, LIFEDesigns & Stone Belt will be hosting Job-A-Palooza 2022 on October 19th! This event helps individuals with disabilities get a closer look into employment paths with local employers by trying actual job tasks and have the opportunity to ask questions about employment. Participants also get to practice interview skills by competing a mock interview with the recruiters from LIFEDesigns & Stone Belt.

JOB-A-PALOOZA is a yearly event hosted by LIFEDesigns and Stone Belt to help individuals with disabilities get a closer look into employment paths with local employers.  In 2019, Duke Energy grant funded the first ever Job-A-Palooza in Bloomington.  Over 20 local employers came to a one day event at The Warehouse in Bloomington and each set up a table with multiple job tasks.

In 2020, the planning team decided to go VIRTUAL to keep everyone safe during the pandemic.  15 employers agree to create videos highlighting job tasks and various employment opportunities within their business.  Every Wednesday in October (National Disability Awareness Month) from 1-2:30 3-4 local business’s premiered their Job-A-Palooza Videos and participated in Question and Answer time afterwards, giving individuals with disabilities a chance to learn more about different employment paths.

Check out these videos from employers to see how they support employment for individuals with disabilities
