General Information
Description of ServiceAAPD is committed to improving employment outcomes for the many people with disabilities who are not working but are ready, willing and able to work.

We promote legislation and policy that promotes opportunities for people with disabilities, partner with employers to improve business practices and develop mentoring programs, and offer career opportunities to students and recent graduates with disabilities.

Internships:
Internships are invaluable professional development tools and can open doors that education alone cannot. In the best programs, interns receive hands-on work experience and mentoring, which prepare them to succeed in the workforce.

Disability Mendoring Day:
The AAPD’s Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) program connects nearly 13,000 students and job seekers with disabilities to thousands of employers each year. The 2011 events took place in over 200 locations across the country. DMD, held the third Wednesday in October, promotes career development through hands-on programs, job shadowing, and ongoing mentoring. This experience has helped thousands of past participants develop lasting relationships and secure internships or jobs.
