WHAT IS DISABILITY MENTORING DAY?

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; job shadowing and ongoing mentoring relationships.

AMERICAN RED CROSS DISABILITY MENTORING DAY MISSION STATEMENT

Disability Mentoring Day at The American Red Cross serves to organize an enterprise-wide program of job shadowing for college students with disabilities.  The goal is to increase the awareness of students with disabilities about career and volunteer opportunities with the American Red Cross.

WHAT HAPPENS ON DISABILITY MENTORING DAY?

One-On-One Job Shadowing: College students with disabilities are matched with American Red Cross staff mentors according to expressed career interests. This enables students to learn more from their assigned shadow day hosts about a typical day on the job and how to prepare for that particular career.

Students can tour Red Cross offices, meet with American Red Cross employees and volunteers for informational interviews, and learn firsthand about different types of jobs and related opportunities at The American Red Cross.  Offices may provide a full or half day experience.

It all begins with this application, so fill it out, send it in and spread the word!
Deadline: All applications MUST be received by Wednesday, September 20th!
For more information, please contact: DMD coordinator.
