Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange is a six-month career mentoring opportunity to at least 200 college students and recent graduates with disabilities through linkages to business professionals from Disability:IN partner companies.

Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange brings together employers, college students, and recent graduates with disabilities, including veterans, in a mutually beneficial way. Mentees meet and interact with business professionals in their field of study or area of interest and with whom they would not otherwise have access to.

The 2018 Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange is now underway and no longer accepting applications, with the program running from March through August. The 2018 Disability:IN Talent Accelerator applications are now closed as well. Please check back on our website in the fall of 2018 for our 2019 Disability:IN Talent Accelerator and 2019 Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange information if you are interested for next year.

If you are a college student or recent graduate with a disability that has questions about transitioning into employment in the business sector, we highly encourage you to apply for the Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange. Our mentoring program is designed to support students and recent graduates as you navigate what it means to be successful and hopefully answer unique questions that relate to being a person with a disability in the workforce. The Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange also gives students and recent graduates a network of business partners to connect with! Disability:IN especially encourages STEM majors, veterans, students of color, and LGBTQ+ students to apply. The current Disability:IN Mentorship Exchange will run from March – August of 2018.
