"Intro to CE (Customized Employment) and Discovery

Presenter's Goals:

After our day together, we will begin to understand how the economy can accommodate all people if powerful tools and highly individualized, universal economic development approaches are utilized. CE will be understood as both a process and an outcome. CE's method of answering the question “Who are you?” - Dicovery – will be understood.

Russell Sickles acts as Director of Operations and Business Development at Job Squad, Inc. located in Bridgeport, WV. Job squad had spent the last few years transitioning from traditional supported employment practices to Universal Economic Development technologies.

Just a few years ago, Russell would have called himself a “Human Services” worker, and a few years before that, a “Social Worker”. He feels that these approaches, while sometimes assisting individuals with basic needs, tend to further marginalize, isolate, impoverish – and ultimately harm – recipients. Russell is interested in micro-lending, asset development, and holistic, highly localized approaches that support disadvantaged individuals and communities. He studied Political Science in college and spent a year in Law School before coming to his senses. He is also a Senior Consultant with Griffin-Hammis Associates, owner of Paradox Community Economic Development, and current President of Mountain State APSE.
