We are thrilled to welcome our new Program Director, Ashley Bray, to BroadFutures. Ashley is passionate about supporting advocacy efforts for individuals with disabilities by breaking down barriers in academia and employment to promote a path to self-determination and success. She has extensive experience and leadership in program development, specifically in expanding academic, economic, and workforce opportunities for diverse communities, including individuals with learning disabilities. Ashley also has experience in the development and facilitation of trainings on disability awareness, inclusion, and appropriate accommodations and technical assistance in both the classroom and the workplace.
We are thrilled to have Ashley bringing her talents, experience and passion to our team here at BroadFutures, especially at this exciting time when we have expanded our program to serve 36 interns this summer and have grown our employer partner partnerships to over 50. A warm welcome to Ashley!!!
We are looking forward to launching our expanded Summer 2019 Program in just a few weeks— we are thrilled to be welcoming 30-35 BroadFutures interns and many new and inspired employer partners!!

We are thrilled to announce that we have graduated our 9th cohort of BroadFutures interns! This was our largest cohort to date and consisted of 28 interns.

Congratulations and good luck to our brand-new alumni!!
We are excited to announce that we have been accredited by the Gap Year Association! It was a rigorous process, but after 9 months of hard work we have achieved accreditation. This partnership with the GYA will enable us to collaborate with other Gap Year programs, to expand our program nationally, and to serve a broader range of students.
BroadFutures signed an MOU with Landmark college earlier this month to serve their students through our program as part of their undergraduate work based learning curriculum.
