American Association of People with Disabilities
Disability Mentoring Day Coordinator Call 2017
June 27, 2017 | 12pm ET
Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a large-scale national effort coordinated by AAPD to promote career development for students and job-seekers with disabilities through hands-on career exploration and ongoing mentoring relationships.
While DMD has been and continues to be officially launched the third Wednesday of each October during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), the foundation of the program has expanded from a one-day event to a year-round initiative across the country.
The growth of DMD is made possible by the unwavering work of DMD Coordinators across the country who volunteer their time to host and manage the logistical requirements for local and regional programs. These events produce life changing results for mentees, such as full time employment and internship opportunities.
During this call we will discuss plans and ideas for Disability Mentoring Day 2017. DMD Coordinators who have organized successful events in the past will share details about what they did as well as their plans for DMD this year. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and get support on organizing their own DMD event(s).
If you have any questions please email DMD@aapd.com.
