We help neurodiverse college students
find internships

​We know that the transition to college was a big step for your son or daughter. If they are getting ready to transition to employment and internship experiences, they may need support in this important transition and we are here to help.

We understand that students with anxiety, NVLD, or autism may face unique challenges in the internship search process.

 

But did you know that many companies across the countries specifically hire neurodiverse students? We have a database of these companies - we want to help your student apply and get accepted!

 

We also know that many students struggle with the executive functioning skills & motivation necessary to tackle the long-term internship search. We are here to support and guide your student every step of the way.

Student Story

My name is Grace T., VT
