Competitive Employment Opportunities (CEO) Program Academies provide professional development, mentoring, and paid internships for students with disabilities.
We pair our Mentoring Academy interns with mentors in their career fields of interest so our interns can learn job specific skills and requirements.
Through intern training classwork and summer internships, our interns learn the job skills they need to be work ready upon program completion.
Throughout their training and summer internships, interns earn a salary of $11.50 per hour.
“Being in the CEO Program over the summer was the best time of my life. Working with Ms. Barnes and the others was amazing. At this point of my life, I never thought I would have done the things that I did with the CEO Program.”‐ Danita Harris, CEO Intern 2013
