Montana Rural Self-Employment Opportunities

Organization Details

Organization: Montana Rural Self-Employment Opportunities


The Rural Self-Employment Opportunities project will work with a state Vocational Rehabilitation agency to modify, evaluate, and refine a self-employment toolkit, materials, and training materials for VR counselors. During Phase 1 researchers will document self-employment procedures and develop counselor materials and training in collaboration with a state VR agency. Phase 2 includes a formative evaluation of the screening process, toolkit, and training materials. During phase 3, researchers will further pilot-test the developed self-employment process and procedures in two additional state VR programs.  If successful, this project will result in an evidence-based self-employment process, created by VR stakeholders, modified by and for use within VR agencies, and tested in additional VR agencies.
