Announcing the DREAM Partnership News Correspondent Internship Program!
The board members and staff at DREAM Partnership are excited and proud to announce a Program Grant Award from UCP of Central PA Foundation. This 2016-2017 grant award will fund the implementation of DREAM’s News Correspondent Internship Program where students attending one of DREAM’s sponsored post-secondary education programs may apply for a semester long paid internship & mentorship. Students attending programs at Mercyhurst University, Penn State University- Harrisburg, Arcadia University, Slippery Rock University, and Temple University will be eligible to apply.
Five students (up to ten by 2017-18) will be hired and will receive training on how to write and publish blog posts on topics relating to self-determination, self-advocacy, and post-secondary college experiences for students with disabilities. This will give students the chance to have a voice in how the public is exposed to information and stories relating to their experiences on and off campus. DREAM will implement a public blog site that will be linked to DREAM’s, UCP of Central PA’s, the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation’s, and Think College’s websites.
