For the tenth year, DO-IT cosponsored an Internet, College, and Career Preview program as part of the yearly Teen Camp session at Camp Courage, MN. A dozen college-bound teens with disabilities participated. They explored resources on the Internet, developed a website (see to share their experiences, and discovered their learning styles, internal and external assets, career interests, and college options. They communicated with DO-IT Scholars, Pals, Ambassadors, and Mentors. They took a field trip to a local university and practiced requesting accommodations from a professor. I was the lead instructor. Rick Light, Chris Rosenberg, Mamoru Iwabuchi, and Bill Taylor provided technical and instructional support. Tracy Benson and Aaron Corcoran, two previous campers who are now in college, stopped by to speak to the group about their steps to success.
