Disability Mentoring Day Coordinator Sign-Up



Thank you for your interest in serving as a Disability Mentoring Day Coordinator!

Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a large-scale national effort coordinated by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) to promote career development for students and job-seekers with disabilities through hands-on career exploration and ongoing mentoring relationships.

DMD Coordinators are the volunteers that make Disability Mentoring Day possible all around the country each year. Coordinators are responsible for organizing DMD events in their community and making connections between students with disabilities, job seekers with disabilities, high schools, colleges and universities, local/state disability organizations, and businesses. Events take many different shapes and forms depending on the volunteer Coordinator and the needs of the local community, but include job shadowing, one-on-one mentoring, panel discussions, professional development workshops, informational interviews, and more. We’ve received countless stories from DMD coordinators on the profound difference this one day can have for young people with disabilities, including leading to their first paid internship or job.
