This spring IN! launched a mentorship program between college students with IDD and Denver Public Schools high school students with IDD who are thinking about college. We are grateful to have received a grant from Point b(e) Strategies and for our collaborators at DPS. See what other cool projects other groups are doing around Denver!
Teams of two from postsecondary education programs were invited to apply for the Think College Policy Advocate yearlong policy education program. Each team had to include one student in a postsecondary program and one staff person, both with a desire to learn more about public policy and advocacy. They will continue after DPS to learn, expand, and apply their DPS lessons to the work they do to promote their programs with policymakers at home.
An inclusive higher education program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities at the University of Northern Colorado is celebrating its first class of graduates this spring. What comes next is a career and, with it, a greater sense of independence. A two-part series covered in partnership between The Colorado Sun and KUNC explores the path from college to career for these students.
