Disability Program Navigator (DPN)
The Disability Program Navigator was originally financed in 2003 to expand the capabilities of the One-stop Career Center system to serve customers with disabilities by supplying accessible, integrated, and seamless services. Now, there are more than 420 Navigators in 42 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other than simply creating systemic change, the Navigators also behave as facilitators to assemble multiple partners in the One-stop Career Centers to create an integrated resource team approach combining and blending resources around an individual customer’s employment needs.

EARN Job Seeker Network
