´┐╝USDA recognizes the importance of "connecting" with youth, applicants, and current employees with disabilities and believes these connections will be strengthened by recognizing the importance of mentoring to build talent pipelines and to promote career advancement. In order to design and implement enhanced mentoring efforts, USDA's Disability Program and Mentoring Program are working closely to create more mentoring opportunities that may lead to USDA employment for youth and adults with disabilities.
