MILESTONE's National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE) program
Empowering people with disabilities to study abroad, volunteer and more...
Programs that send or bring international visitors across U.S. borders value and encourage diversity, but there is often an important aspect of diversity underrepresented in international programs: people with disabilities.
That’s starting to change. Recognizing the need for greater diversity in people to people programs, MIUSA administers the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE), a project to increase the participation of people with disabilities in all types of travel with a purpose.
Through our free advising service, trainings, and online resources, we are moving steadily towards making international programs – and the world – more accessible and inclusive for all. Explore our resources or contact us personally today to get your questions answered.
The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange is a project of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, designed to increase the participation of people with disabilities in international exchange between the United States and other countries, and is supported in its implementation by Mobility International USA.
Since 1993, with the launching of the ECA-sponsored National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange, MILESTONE has been sending the necessary message about the importance and relevance of including people with disabilities in international exchange and how to accomplish that in the United States and around the world.
