Overview:

Disability:IN’s NextGen Leaders Program consists of a six-month mentorship program for college students and recent graduates with disabilities. Our program connects NextGen Leaders to experienced professionals from our corporate partners, creating supportive relationships to navigate the job search. We want the NextGen Leader mentees to gain as many corporate connections as possible by the time they leave this program, but there is no guarantee that our NextGen Leaders will get a job offer during the program.

The NextGen Leaders Program is highly selective and receives over a thousand applications each year. Completion of this application does not guarantee a place in the program; your acceptance is contingent on the strength of your application.


Review a list of our Disability:IN corporate partners here. You will be asked to rank 10 companies in order of your interest on the second page of the application.
