Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

Completing an internship can help young people with and without disabilities prepare for their career field of choice. In “Internships: The On-Ramp to Employment, A Guide for Students with Disabilities to Getting and Making the Most of an Internship,” the National Consortium on Leadership & Disability for Youth guides youth through the steps of finding, applying for, participating in, and evaluating an internship. Topics covered include activities focused on career exploration, interview and resume building, goal setting, networking, as well as information and tips for youth with disabilities on finding accessible housing, navigating the transportation system, disclosing a disability, and employing a personal care attendant.
