Through a series of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions, the site collects information about each unique user and produces individualized reports that young adults can use to get started on their path to employment.  The benefit of MyPathNY.org is that it helps users navigate the various systems and state agencies that help young adults with disabilities find and keep a job in NYS, which can often be overwhelming and confusing.  Begin your search at: http://www.mypathny.org/
