A paid internship program for young adults with disabilities. The goal of Access to Opportunities is to assist people with disabilities in their transition from school to adulthood to the world of work by providing internships at the Smithsonian that are tailored to interns’ areas of interest, and that will open the doors of knowledge and opportunity for these young people.
A project of the Smithsonian Institution's Accessibility Program and the Smithsonian Museums. Guided by a Community Advisory Committee comprised of museum educators, exhibit designers, professionals who work with children on the Autism Spectrum, parents, and self-advocates, the Smithsonian has developed a series of pre-visit materials designed to help children on the spectrum and their families enjoy a visit to the Smithsonian Museums.
