Internship Guide for Youth Released by National Consortium on Leadership & Disability for Youth

April 19, 2011

 

Completing an internship is an ideal way for young people with and without disabilities to prepare for their career field of choice. In its most recent publication, 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 (NCLD/Y) guides young people through the step-by-step process of finding, applying for, participating in, and even evaluating an internship. With tools necessary to maintain a competitive advantage over fellow job seekers, this guide leads young people through activities focused on career exploration, interview and resume building, goal setting, networking, and more to prepare them to successfully complete an internship and transition toward employment. In addition, the guide includes information and tips of specific relevance to youth with disabilities, including finding accessible housing, navigating the transportation system, disclosing a disability, and employing a personal care attendant.
