NCIL Takes Leadership of Greater Washington Internship Coalition

As we welcome the new Youth Transitions Fellow, Allie Cannington, we are excited to announce that the Greater Washington Internship Coalition (GWIC) will now be under the leadership of NCIL. Established in 2008 by AAPD and the HSC Foundation, it has grown into a collaborative group of internship programs serving young people with disabilities based in the Greater Washington, DC area.  With NCIL, the Coalition will continue to develop innovative ways to enhance the inclusion and overall experiences of interns with disabilities. The fellow will ensure to maintain and grow GWIC by engaging new and old members, local universities and colleges, and young people with disabilities.
