Work Without Limits is excited to partner with the American Association of People with Disabilities on a Massachusetts Disability Mentoring Day (DMD)!
The DMD will take place on Thursday, June 9th, 2016.
In order to be considered for this opportunity, individuals must complete an online application which can be found by clicking here. Based on responses within this application, Mentees will be matched with Mentors. Applications are being accepted through Friday, May 13, 2016. Mentees will be notified of their acceptance into the program and who their Mentors are on or around May 27th. They will also be told at that time what time to report and where, and what time the day will end. Mentors seek Mentees who have career goals closely aligned to their respective lines of work, when possible. Careful matching will take place to ensure a good fit for both mentor and mentee. There is a possibility that not everyone will be matched.
