Congratulations to our 10th Intern Cohort!
Earlier this month, we celebrated the graduation of our 10th cohort of  interns. Interns, employers, parents, and staff joined us for an afternoon of intern presentations on their BroadFutures experience and recognition of our amazing employers for their partnership and passionate commitment to the young people we serve. We are so proud of the growth and accomplishments of all of our interns and incredibly grateful to our employer partners.
GOOD LUCK to our talented interns! They are each leaving the BroadFutures program with added levels of self-confidence and workplace skills, as well as a clearer understanding of how to use their strengths in a professional environment while implementing strategies to improve upon any areas of challenge.
10th BroadFutures Intern Cohort
BroadFutures interns and employers
The number 10 provides us the occasion to be reflective and proud of our success to date, but most importantly we are grateful to our community for helping us reach this milestone. Thank you for all your support!! 
Night out at the Ballpark
To
close out our winter program, we were thrilled to be guests again this year at the Nationals Park to watch the Washington Nationals v. the San Francisco Giants! We were joined by BroadFutures interns, alumni interns, employers and families for a fun night at the ball park. A HUGE thanks to the Nationals for sponsoring our tickets and hosting us for a great bonding experience.
Grant with the District Wharf
BroadFutures has been awarded a grant from The District Wharf development partnership, The Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW) and The D.C. Mayor's Office in the amount of $100,000.  
Last summer BroadFutures entered into a partnership with The District Wharf, serving 10 young people through our summer internship program.  Our interns worked at District Wharf employersInterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf, Concord Hospitality Services, Colonial Parking, Entertainment Cruises, The Southwest Business Improvement District (SWBID), and CBRE.  It was a highly successful partnership for both our participants and for The Wharf employers.  The purpose of the grant is to build off of our past success and to allow for the expansion of our partnership, as well as to provide the necessary support for the types of opportunities we were able to make happen last summer for District youth.
Intern Spotlight- 
This month we are shining the spotlight on Jacob Ottinger! Jacob is a 21-year-old young man from Chevy Chase, MD. He is currently enrolled at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA where he is studying political science. Jacob spent the winter as an intern at the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). AAPD is a nonprofit organization that seeks to increase the political and economic power of people with disabilities.
As an intern, Jacob was responsible for many tasks including helping prepare for the AAPD gala, answering phone calls, attending meetings, and assisting with the REV UP Campaign which aims to increase the voter turnout among people with disabilities. His supervisors were so impressed with his positive attitude and hard work that he was offered an extended internship that will last through the summer. Congratulations, Jacob! And a big thank you to AAPD for being such a welcoming and inspired employer partner.
Reflecting on his internship experience, Jacob said,"The program's strength is in its support and help for people with disabilities. It really does feel like an environment where someone can share openly and honestly about their struggles. The community aspect of BroadFutures is one that should be continued to be pushed and promoted."
Good luck with the rest of your internship, Jacob!
Summer at BroadFutures
As we close out our winter program, we are already busy preparing for our upcoming Summer program! This incoming intern cohort is the largest we have ever served, and we are eager to meet the new young people that will be representing BroadFutures at their respective internship sites.
We are so happy to welcome back many of our employer partners for this summer and many new employer partners to the BroadFutures community.  We will be introducing our new employers in our next newsletter so stay tuned!!!

Winter 2019 Program is Well Underway! 
Our Winter 2019 interns are just over halfway through the program, and they are all doing tremendously in their internships and are making steady progress towards building their professional skills. They have all been presented with incredible opportunities including developing and presenting their own research, helping out with annual galas, leading staff meetings, collaborating and training with different departments, and much, much more. 
Our interns have also been developing professionally through our Friday trainings, where we have been engaging in dynamic conversations about stamina and attention in the workplace, email etiquette, networking, self-advocating, feedback, and the importance of maintaining a growth mindset, among other topics.

APSE, having a mission and vision very closely aligned with BroadFutures', appreciates the value that our interns have brought to their office. When asked about their experience thus far, Executive Director Jenny Stonemeier had this to say: "We are so thrilled to have Sam and Christian join the APSE team.

We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of such a comprehensive and strengths-based approach to support young people in gaining professional experience."

Intern Spotlight- Stephen Anderson

Stephen Anderson first joined BroadFutures as an intern in Winter 2018, and he is joining us again this winter as an alumni intern! He graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Architecture. Having decided to pursue a career outside of his major, Stephen began looking to gain new experiences in the professional world to explore his interests and expand upon his skills. His internship last winter was in the office of Congressman John Delaney of Maryland, where he answered calls from and created case files for constituents, provided administrative support, and had a large role in collecting and organizing submissions in a county-wide school art competition. Stephen enjoyed his internship over the winter so much that he continued to work there through this past summer. His new internship this winter is with Enterprise Holdings, Inc. where he is in the management training track.  

Stephen had these thoughts to share about his past year: "I'm really thankful that BroadFutures has been able to support me in my continued growth and give me the tools I need to realize success during and after the program. I want to thank Enterprise for being an employer partner and working with me to ensure my continued success."

Thanks Stephen, and good luck at your internship!

Intern Spotlight - Devynn Johnson

This month, we are excited to shine the spotli ght on Summer 2018 intern Devynn Johnson. Devynn interned at World Learning,  a thriving international nonprofit organization that has worked to create a more  peacefu l, sustainable, and just world for over 85 years.

As an intern at World Learning, Devynn
conducted research, compiled data, completed administrative tasks, and created a final presentation summarizing her research. Devynn is currently finishing her first semester at Delaware State University. 

Devynn had this to say about her time as a BroadFuture s intern at World Learning

"BroadFutures... helps and supports youth to become work-ready adults. As a work ready adult, youth learn the work environment that they may or may not like and how to deal with those environments... To be better one must do better, to do better one must know their own faults and BroadFutures not only shows you how to be better but also how to do better based on strengths instead of weaknesses."

Thanks for sharing these thoughts, Devynn, and good luck with your next semester!

Our 5th Anniversary Changing Lives Fall Gala...
A Great Success!!!


Thank you to our incredible community for helping to make the BroadFutures 5th Anniversary Changing Lives Fall Gala a huge success! The Gala was  held on November 17th at the French Embassy, and we were thrilled that everyone had such a good time. We are grateful to our sponsors, donors, guests, and of course our amazing alumni interns, both for our successful evening and for everyone's support to further our mission!

We presented our Champion Award to our two honorees: The AES Corporation, a valued employer partner, and LeDerick Horne, whose personal story of disability and spoken word poetry left us all inspired and in awe. We surpassed our fundraising goal and increased our support by 20% from 2018. We were also able to raise an additional $25,320.92 at the Gala to support scholarships for our 2019 programs to ensure that BroadFutures is able to serve a diverse group of young people and expand our programs. Thank you to everyone for making the evening an incredible success!!!



 Staff Spotlight - Laurie Thomas

This month we are shining the spotlight on our Director of Program Support, Laurie Thomas, who has been with us for 8 out of our 9 programs. Laurie's expertise and extensive knowledge of the challenges of executive dysfunction have been instrumental to the success of our program. As an active and engaged member of the ADHD education and treatment community, Laurie has an in-depth knowledge of ADHD and the varying and accompanying challenges those with ADHD experience.  Laurie provides support and guidance to both our interns and employers, ensuring mutually successful outcomes. Her support and strategies are tailored to each individual intern and employer, allowing for overall effective and positive partnerships. 

Reflecting on her time at BroadFutures, Laurie had these thoughts to share: 

"Each intern has such extraordinary potential. It is always incredibly gratifying to meet these young people where they are when they enter the program and watch them use strategies, tools and supports to make meaningful progress towards reaching their potential. Witnessing the growth interns make in improving their self-confidence, self advocacy, communication and executive function skills is an enormous privilege for me."

Thank you, Laurie, for your inspired commitment to our mission and to those we serve!!!

October is...
National Disability
Employment Awareness Month!

BroadFutures is proud to once again celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month  (NDEAM), an annual awareness campaign that takes place each October. NDEAM aims to educate people about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. This year's theme is "America's Workforce: Empowering All."
 
BroadFutures supports the mission of NDEAM  through our holistic training, mentoring and paid internship program for young people with disabilities. We believe in the inherent and untapped potential of the young people that we serve, and we recognize that inclusion works for everyone.  Last year in an effort to bring awareness to this effort, BroadFutures, in collaboration with several other like-minded organizations and Quoted Studios, developed an educational and fun animated video on unconscious bias and the value of hiring individuals with disabilities. We are excited to share it again this October to help educate and inspire others.

Reflections from our CEO/President, Carolyn Jeppsen

Change your life today. Don't gamble on the  
future, act now without delay.
 - Simone de Beauvoir

It has been 5 years since we incorporated BroadFutures, founded upon the fervent belief that we needed to act now without delay to change the existing landscape for young people with learning disabilities transitioning to school or work. After 5 years, hundreds of young people served both directly through our internship programs and indirectly through our outreach programs, and partnerships with over 40 employers, we have hopefully changed attitudes, perceptions, expectations, workplaces, hopes, dreams...and lives.

I am so incredibly humbled and inspired by the courage and tenacity that the young people we serve have demonstrated over the past 5 years. We have seen a diverse group of young people commit to changing their own lives, to act NOW and without delay, and in so doing, they have reaped the wonderful benefits of change, progress and success. I am equally humbled and inspired by the passion and dedication that our employer partners have shown in hosting our interns, and in opening to the possibilities of what a diverse workforce in the 21st century looks like and of the promise of the young people we serve. I am also every day humbled and inspired by our staff and all the specialists we work with towards our shared commitment and vision of a future where diverse learners can thrive. Finally, I am incredibly grateful to the many supporters in our village who have donated their time, money, heart, and soul to BroadFutures. Without all for you, we would not be in the position of celebrating what we are today.

While we are incredibly proud of where we are, we want to continue to grow and bring our programs to many, many more young people. We are hopeful that as a community, you will all celebrate with us and be a part of our Changing Lives Gala on November 17th, marking this important time for us as an organization!  We look forward to working together to continue to change lives. 
Join us as a Sponsor at our 
5th Anniversary Changing Lives Fall Gala!


Intern Spotlight - Danielle Bedney

We are shining the light on another Summer 2018 Program alum this month! 

Danielle "Danny" Bedney is from Washington, DC. She graduated from the Seed Public Charter School and is now in her junior year at Hartford University, where she is majoring in film. During the BroadFutures program, Danny interned for the Smithsonian Visitor Center, better known as "The Castle." Danny's supervisor entrusted her to reinvent the brochure for the museum, which was no small feat. All summer, Danny worked tirelessly on producing a product with visual appeal, fascinating stories, and comprehensive information by touring the museum, collecting survey responses from docents and volunteers, and perusing the archives. Her dedication to this project was admired by her supervisor, and her final presentation to staff members about the design and information for the brochure was impressive after only one summer working there. This past summer, Danny was able to capitalize on her creative skills and ability to self-advocate to ensure that she was as successful as possible. These skills will help her work towards success in school and in her career, as she hopes to be a documentary filmmaker one day.

Danny appreciated feeling like a part of a community here at BroadFutures and learning more about herself: 

"One thing I liked the most about BroadFutures was that I got the opportunity to see incredible young adults just like me. It made me feel like I wasn't alone with my disability. Over the summer I learned that I was capable of setting a goal and completing it when I'm given the right tools to succeed."

Thanks, Danny. We wish you the best of luck as you continue on your journey!!
 Employer Spotlight - PunkinFutz  

We are thrilled to have one of our newest employer partners, PunkinFutz, spotlighted this month. PunkinFutz designs and manufactures therapeutic play products for children with a broad range of physical, sensory, developmental, and emotional needs. They aim to create products that are original and accessible to children with varying needs, to support child-led imaginative play, to design and produce the products in integrated and supported work  environments, and to conduct their business
in an environmentally and socially responsible way. PunkinFutz joined as a new employer partner this past summer and hosted two interns to work on social media and research-based projects.

Chief Marketing Officer Whitney Hunter-Thompson, who supervised the two BroadFutures interns this summer, understands the value proposition in partnering with us and had this to say about her time with the interns: '

"We were so delighted to work with BroadFutures and in so doing, support their important mission. Our interns were incredible! BroadFutures' time spent training the interns, supporting their professional development and improvement, and acting as additional advocates allowed us to utilize the full extent possible of our interns' skills and capabilities. As any employer knows, a vast majority of time can be spent on the general skills of an employee/intern that take away from the technical tasks at hand. BroadFutures absolutely solves for that. We look forward to a continued partnership with them in the future, but in the meantime, we encourage anyone and everyone who needs interns to use BroadFutures!"

Thank you for these kind words, Whitney! We are excited to continue our partnership with PunkinFutz as they work to provide new options to celebrate and strengthen our diverse community.

Concluding a Successful Summer 
Celebrating the Graduation of our 9th Cohort!!
Interns & Employers Celebrating Final Presentations & Graduation

On August 10th, we celebrated the successful completion of our largest  program to date. There was a refreshing energy among our interns and employers, stemming from a sense of great achievement for the successes all around. Our interns gained self-confidence while developing new and transferable skills on their paths to professional and personal development.   They surpassed all our expectations, successfully completing their internships,  pushing their limits, and stepping outside of their comfort zones in ways that we never expected.  We are very proud of them!

We are grateful to all of our new and returning employer partners who hosted our interns and provided them with invaluable experiences and critical support. We are also thankful to our parents, staff and donors for their partnership in helping us conclude our summer program. We appreciate those who took time out of their busy work days to come to the final presentations. We feel so fortunate to have this incredible community supporting us!

 Intern Spotlight: Max Peterson  

This month we are shining the spotlight on one of our Winter 2018 interns - Max Peterson. Max attended Moorpark Community College in California as a History major and worked in the restaurant business before joining BroadFutures. During our program, he interned with the Office of Senator Chris Van Hollen. As an intern in a congressional office, Max supported many aspects of the daily operations of the Senator's office including creating  case files, answering constituent phone calls, and performing other administrative support. During his internship, Max was able to meet the Senator as well as work in the Capitol Hill Office. 

Max's employer admired his work ethic, positive attitude, attention to detail, and deeper understanding of his responsibilities. The internship equipped Max with the needed skills to continue on his professional growth trajectory and expand his future career options. He will be returning  to community college in the fall.  Max is a strong supporter of the BroadFutures holistic approach and felt that our program benefitted him both personally and professionally.  When reflecting on his experience, Max said:  "BroadFutures has made me more confident in what I do."
Employer Spotlight: World Learning
BroadFutures Intern, Devynn Johnson (R), with World Learning's Chris Iverson 
This was our second program partnering with  World  Lear ning. They first joined as an employer partner this winter, and we were excited to collaborate again with this incredible organization and its amazing team during the summer. World Learning is an international non-profit  organization dedicated to promoting a more peaceful an d just world for over 85 years. Grounded in five key approaches, including experiential learning, leadership development, inclusive practices, innovation, and grants management, World Learning's mission is to help young p eople find their voices, connect with their communities, and strengthen the insti tutions which aid their emergence as world leaders.

World Learning enthusiastically embraces our mission, and in reflecting on our partnership and the impact BroadFutures interns have had on their organization, Senior Youth Workforce Specialist Catherine Honeyman had these words to share:

" We have particularly learned from how BroadFutures prepares employers to receive interns by showcasing their strengths and areas where they may need additional support, and from how BroadFutures offers its interns ongoing mentorship and training support. 

In their projects with us, BroadFutures interns have supported us to gather data on the Pakistani labor market to know which types of skill training programs we should emphasize in our project, organize participant feedback from training programs in Latin America, organize the research and references we draw upon in designing high-quality programming, and analyze where we might expand our services.
 
Thanks to our past interns, Devynn and Sophie, and to the whole BroadFutures team!"

Thank you to Catherine Honeyman and the incredible team at World Learning. We look forward to an ongoing and successful partnership!!
