Hard at Work
Our interns have been hard at work in their internships for 3 weeks now. They  are working at a wide variety of internships and all excelling! From working with computers to interviewing applicants to acquiring general professional skills, our interns have already gained many valuable workplace experiences. We are so excited to see their continued success in the coming weeks!

Below are some snapshots from our training, including our intern's presentations at the end of initial training, our drama curriculum, and graffiti art.


































February was a busy month spreading the word of the BroadFutures mission

From sunny Florida to snowy Vermont, we have been all over! We are so grateful to have opportunities like these to get the word out about what BroadFutures has to offer for students who learn and think differently. From presenting at  Beacon College  and the  Learning Disabilities Association of America  2020 Conference to visiting  Landmark College  in Vermont over parent's weekend, we have met so many wonderful people, including many promising potential applicants. To all of the students we met, we hope to see your application soon!!

Employer Spotlight - Discovery, Inc.


This month we are excited to feature Discovery, Inc. in our Employer Spotlight! Discovery, Inc.  is known as the #1 global real-world media and entertainment corporation. Discovery has achieved global operations in more than 160 countries and territories, reaching an approximate 1.3 billion subscribers. We began our partnership in the summer of 2017 and currently have two interns from the Winter 2020 cohort working at Discovery. We are so grateful for our partnership and for Discovery's willingness to work with us and find new ways to challenge and support our interns. 

Pat Djiwatampu, a supervisor for many of our BroadFutures interns, shared, "BroadFutures had made me aware of the support that society needs to provide for young people to better equip themselves to be independent and BroadFutures certainly provides the support and I have seen the immensely tremendous results in the students who were and are interning with Discovery." In addition, other Discovery employees who work closely with BroadFutures wanted to share their experiences, including Rogers Barnes, who said,"BroadFutures is a program dear to me...To think I play an important part is a great feeling and I hope to continue and expand this relationship with BroadFutures and Discovery for many years to come," and Calvin Song, who wrote, "Absolutely enjoy working with the BroadFutures interns. Some of most talented young adults I've had the pleasure of meeting."

To everyone at Discovery, we thank you so much for your kind words - you guys are the best!

Intern Spotlight - Michael Glynn

This month we are shining the spotlight on Michael Glynn! A 23-year-old from Bowie, Maryland, Michael is a thoughtful and fun addition to our winter cohort. As a graphic design major, Michael possesses a keen attention to detail and creativity, and these two skills are clearly demonstrated through his work.

Along with one other BroadFutures intern, Michael is interning at Discovery, Inc. In the three weeks that he has been there, Michael has already had the chance to give a presentation, refine his computer skills, and gain an overall sense of how an office setting operates. Throughout his internship and training, Michael has proven himself to be a natural leader. Keep up the good work, Michael, and we can't wait to see more of your continued successes!
