Do you need a summer internship? Would you like the chance to work in our nation’s capital? Check out the opportunities offered through the Greater Washington Internship Coalition. You can read their message below, or head straight over to their website,


A Message from Francis Vhay, of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD):

“Participating in an internship is a great way to learn new skills and develop your personal and professional interests. You can expand your network and make connections while gaining valuable work experience. Please consider exploring the Greater Washington Internship Coalition, a group of internship programs based in the greater Washington, DC area that looks to include young people with disabilities. The Coalition is a one-stop opportunity for college students with disabilities and emerging professionals with disabilities to seek and receive information on unique internship programs for them!

“Some of these internship programs are specifically for people with disabilities, while others are looking to include more students with disabilities in their programs. Most programs are based in Washington, DC, though some are nationwide, and many (though not all) provide a stipend, pay, or even housing so that it is easier for all students to come to DC for a semester or the summer. You can explore the webpage here:, and follow the links to each organization’s webpage to find out more the internship requirements and to apply. Questions about specific internship programs should be directed to each organization.

“The nation’s Capital is a great place to do an internship. Washington, DC is home to thousands of awesome opportunities for you to explore as you launch your career. You can intern at federal agencies, on the Capitol Hill, at the White House, in the private or nonprofit sector, and even at a theater company! There are internships available for students with all types of interests and educational backgrounds, from STEM fields, to international development, to political science, to arts management. Many of the deadlines for summer 2014 opportunities are coming up between December and March.  Please explore the webpage and consider applying to one of these fantastic programs!”

Follow this link to take the survey.

The survey takes about 10 minutes, you can opt-in for a chance to win $500.

From NCIL: “The survey questions are well designed and have the power to shape debate about disability policy. Power and control of policies can be ours for the taking, but we need a very large sample size and strong participation from the grassroots disability community to ensure that the results are valid.

“The results of this poll will be shared with the White House, all 50 Governors, top media, disability groups, and more!

“Anything that you can do to engage a broad range of stakeholders to fill out the survey would be greatly appreciated. Please share the survey with your Twitter, Facebook and email followers.

“The results of each individual will be confidential, but the overall results will be made public.
