BENEFITING: WRIGHTCHOICE INTERN PROGRAM
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2013
WrightChoice, Inc. (www.wrightchoice.org) has served college students with disabilities for 11yrs. Our goal has ALWAYS been to improve the participation of students with disabilities (SWDs) in experiential learning opportunities by educating employers about students with disabilities as interns. We understand that the largest employer in the United States is the small business owner employing more than 52% of the employees. Most small businesses have the capacity to provide hands-on learning experience for students with disabilities but often times do not have the financial resources to pay them. "Place Interns with Disabilities" is a fundraiser that will allow WrightChoice to partner with small businesses to place college students with disabilities and pay them a stipend.
EXPERIENCE MATTERS ESPECIALLY FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
MAKE THE WRIGHTCHOICE!!!
