Summer Career Camps
The Dream Big program strives to empower college and technical school-bound youth with disabilities to dream big about their future. The program aims to show students that they can do many things that their non-disabled peers can do, and they should not limit their career goals.
NEW THIS YEAR: our final week will be an experience for middle school students (6th-8th grade) with disabilities to discover career possibilities and learn about disability pride and history!
