The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the District of Columbia school system (DCPS) are partnering up to create a mentorship program for high school students who have autism and various disabilities. The partnership between the two is part of the DCPS’s career-focused mentoring program which assigns select students with disabilities to professional mentors throughout the DC area. The program will offer students career exploration opportunities, soft skill training and career goal-setting support and will conclude with a mentor-supported, career-focused capstone project. The NASA/DCPS collaboration is part of the larger DCPS CEO program which pairs underserved DC students in various career mentoring programs. For more information, visit DCPS’ CEO website.
