Peer Mentoring

National Center for Disability Education and Training (NCDET) and the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) have launched a peer mentoring program, adapted from Peer MentoringWorks, for mentees (high-school students) aged 16-21 and mentors aged 18-26.  The program aims to foster self-advocacy, establish a network, and increase confidence within both mentor and mentee.  The pair will be matched in line with their career, academic, and/or social interests.  Through regular meetings, mentors and mentees will have the opportunity to explore self-determination skills, career interests, disability resource navigation, and so much more.

For more information or questions contact Dr. Annie Baghdayan: or call 405-3250158.
