Access to Exchange Externship Alumni Highlights
For years, we sought out ways to educate the disability community about opportunities and strategies to study or volunteer abroad, and to encourage more accessibility enthusiasts to join the field of international education. We came up with the Access to Exchange Externship at the end of 2019. The mission: to offer a paid remote internship in which individuals with disabilities would share opportunities and strategies to study or volunteer abroad to their peers while jump-starting their international education careers. This agile program has pivoted and evolved to respond to unexpected circumstances like the Covid-19 pandemic and overwhelming interest from non-U.S. countries, and we think it will endure for years to come.
