Inclusive Education Services (IES) at the University of Central Florida’s is an inclusive program designed for students with a diagnosed Intellectual Disability. IES began in 2015 and in May 2019, 13 students graduated earning a Professional Service Credential focused on a specific area of study.
IES students live on campus, attend classes, clubs and social events. All students participate in college courses focused on skill building, professionalism, and career readiness. The ultimate goal is for students to graduate with the skills and confidence needed to secure paid employment in a career they love.
The IES team seeks to collaborate with Business partners who would host a student in a single semester Capstone Internship.
Tammi Johnson, the Internship Career Liaison with IES will be our guest speaker this month. Tammi has 25+ years with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts in positions that included Guest Relations & Corporate Training. Tammi joined the IES team to lead the professional training curriculum and to develop collaborations with community partners.
Accompanying Tammi will be Ms. Amanda Carbonneau, one of the recent graduates of the IES program at UCF.
They have a great presentation that you won’t want to miss.
