End of Year Message from our CEO, Carolyn Jeppsen

As 2019 comes to a close we find ourselves at the advent of a new decade and the urge to reflect on where we have come is of particular poignance. The past year has been our most successful to date. It marks an inflection point in our growth as a young, small non-profit passionately committed to changing the present landscape for young people with learning disabilities. With our success comes a well-deserved moment of gratitude for all who have helped to support and grow our mission - our donors, our employers, our families, and of course, our interns, who are our best expression of the value of a diverse workforce. Yet with our success also comes much responsibility. I profoundly adhere to the maxim that to w hom much is given, much is expected. And so, it is for BroadFutures. We have been given much by our community, and we owe much in return - to continue our mission of providing access and support to young people while also educating our employers on the gifts of those that we serve. 

As we look forward into a new decade, I see a new horizon. A horizon I like to believe is full of hope and opportunity.  A horizon where our young people will start on an even playing ground - where their opportunities will be equal and shared, where it will be the destination and not the path that is valued - where they will be judged not by how they got to the answer, solution, or idea, but that they got there, where diverse minds creating diverse solutions are celebrated, educated, and employed, where young people are taught to speak up for themselves, in their own voice, and articulate their own needs, and where employers understand that young, vibrant minds are an asset to the workforce, I am passionately committed to our mission and promise to all of you that we will head into 2020 with the courageous commitment to change as many lives as we can, never losing sight of our adherence to integrity and excellence.

THANKS to everyone in our community for your support an wishing all of you a wonderful end of 2019 and a Very Happy and Healthy New Year. 


It is not too late to help support our mission of empowering young people with learning disabilities!! If you want to spread holiday cheer through an act of giving, please consider a charitable gift to BroadFutures!

Intern Spotlight - Leora Cherry

Meet Leora Cherry, our December Intern Spotlight! Leora was a participant in our Summer 2019 Program, where she excelled working in the Office of Congressman Trone. Looking back on her time working in a Congressman's office, Leora commented, " I appreciate all the work experience I gained" - which included taking calls from constituents and working with spreadsheets. Leora also reflected that she enjoyed the drama and yoga portions of our curriculum. " I enjoyed the one time I got to teach a short yoga class," Leora added.

At our recent Lighting the Way Fall Gala, Leora was a featured speaker, introducing Congressman Trone and presenting him with our Champion Award, an award given for his commitment to an inclusive and diverse workplace.

Employer Spotlight - Entertainment Cruises


This month we are excited to feature Entertainment Cruises for our Employer Spotlight! Entertainment Cruises was founded in Norfolk, Virginia in 1978. What started as a one-boat operation has grown to 48 cruise boats across 10 locations. Entertainment Cruises hosts over 2.3 million guests a year on their high-end, luxury cruise boats. They first partnered with BroadFutures in the summer of 2018 as part of our larger partnership with The District Wharf and we look forward to our continuing partnership! Entertainment Cruises also generously hosted our employer partners for a fall luncheon boat cruise, which was not only a wonderful networking opportunity, but a delicious and fun event as well. 

Amanda Padilla-Brennan, Talent Acquisition Manager, worked with two of our interns this summer. When asked about her experience, Amanda expressed, "The opportunity to partner with BroadFutures this past summer has been an unforgettable experience for me. Having a passion for hiring talent and seeing new employees advance in their roles is very important to me. Watching my interns grow in their roles such as seeing their communication/customer service skills go above and beyond in addition to receiving feedback from the managers on what valuable assets they had become to the teams, made me extremely excited for their future in the workforce. I can't wait to partner again with BroadFutures in 2020!!"

Thank you for those kind words, Amanda! More information about Entertainment Cruises can be found here.

Intern Spotlight - Katherine Crater

Meet Katherine Crater, a graduate of our Summer 2019 Program! She is currently attending Montgomery College and majoring in graphic design. Her interests include Marvel, video editing, and animals. This summer Katherine interned at the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) where she proved to be an excellent graphic designer. Katherine did such a wonderful job that ASAN has asked her to continue working for them on a project basis, which she is doing while also attending classes. 

Looking back on her experience with BroadFutures, as well as her time now working with ASAN, Katherine commented, " The experience at BroadFutures taught me things that I may not have already known before, or had known but expanded upon. The drama sessions were very entertaining and the trips were fun as well. I also enjoyed getting to know some new people.  I had a really enjoyable time working at ASAN as their graphic designer for their Annual Report. The fact that their theme for the Annual Report this year was a comic aesthetic made it more fun. Right now I'm editing their easy read toolkit icons, as well as making a couple other graphics. "

Congratulations, Katherine, on continuing your graphic design work at ASAN and your education!
Employer Spotlight - The Arc of Northern Virginia

This month we would like to shine the spotlight on The Arc of Northern Virginia, a new employer partner who started working with us this past summer. The Arc of Northern Virginia is a local chapter of the largest non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc shares our mission of empowering individuals with disabilities. The Arc's mission is to promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to help support inclusion in the community.

Larry Rockwell, Director of Communications & Community Relations, worked closely with our intern this past summer. Looking back on the experience, Larry had this to say, "As an organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities, we are keenly aware of the skills, talents, and abilities that these young people possess, but are too often overlooked in the workplace. As fierce advocates for expanding opportunities for men and women with a disability to enjoy meaningful employment, we were thrilled to partner with BroadFutures to "walk the walk."  We identified a set of skills and tasks that were needed, and BroadFutures matched us with a student intern who fit the bill perfectly. But in addition to those job skills, our intern also brought a greater sense of awareness of the needs, even to us. While we hope her job experience with The Arc of Northern Virginia was rewarding, we know that we, as an organization, are richer as a result of her being with us, and of our relationship with BroadFutures."

Thank you for those kind words, Larry! More information about The Arc of Northern Virginia can be found here.

Information Session for 2020 Programs - October 9th

Staff Spotlight - Alexa Weidanz

This month we are excited to feature Alexa, our Senior Program Associate! Alexa has been an inspiring and critical addition to the BroadFutures team. In addition to providing overall support for the coordination and management of our programs, Alexa serves as a mentor to our interns.  

When reflecting upon her time with BroadFutures, Alexa had this to say:  Over these past two years at BroadFutures, I have acted as a mentor to over 30 young people in five different programs. Watching and participating in their growth has been so rewarding, and I am always thrilled to hear about the continued successes of our alumni. I also really enjoy being able to share ideas and strategies with other mentors and our team. BroadFutures's ability to build community amongst interns, employer partners, and staff is one of the program's greatest strengths!

We appreciate all the work you do! Thank you for passion and commitment to our mission Alexa!!!
Employer Spotlight - American Institutes for Research

Our Employer Spotlight for the month of September features American Institutes for Research (AIR)! AIR is  one of the world's largest behavioral and social science research organizations, focused on using the best science available to help make the world a better place. AIR is proudly committed to fully integrating diversity and inclusion in their strategy, operations, and work environment. 

When speaking about the internship program AIR puts on each summer, Taliba Boone, Recruiting Project Associate, commented: " One of the things about our internship program that stands out this year is our partnership with BroadFutures. This year we have Christian, and he's working in our IT department, and I must say that he has been getting great reviews. Diversity and inclusion is important, because it shows in the work that we do. You need people from diverse backgrounds who have diverse thoughts. It just makes the work stronger and makes organizations as a whole stronger."

We love how AIR makes diversity and inclusion a top priority. We are so grateful for our partnership! More information about AIR can be found here.
Intern Spotlight - Brad Veira

This month we are shining the intern spotlight on Brad Veira! Brad recently graduated from Kipp DC and this fall he started at the University of the District of Colombia where he wants to major in mechanical engineering. His favorite class this semester is trigonometry.

Brad was an amazing addition to our summer 2019 cohort. He worked very hard interning for Southwest Business Improvement District (SWBID). He enjoyed his internship and really liked the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of tasks, one of his favorite being using the power washer! Brad reflected on his time with BroadFutures, saying he learned " how to open up more and be more attentive."  We enjoyed getting to know you this summer, Brad, and we wish you the best of luck at UDC!

Our Summer Program is in Full Swing!

Our Summer 2019 interns are more than halfway through the program, and they are all gaining invaluable professional skills and work experience.  They are working in  a diverse group of industries including policy, international affairs, disability, finance, energy, hotel and tourism, and many more. 

Every Friday our interns return to BroadFutures for discussions and activities around areas of success and growth including time management, career exploration, networking, maintaining a growth mindset, self-advocacy, good sleep habits, and more. We continue to integrate drama to reinforce our curriculum as well as yoga and mindfulness to introduce stress tolerance and reduction. Below are some of our interns completing a career skill scan activity.


Fun Events in July!

We recently welcomed current interns, alumni and staff for a fun filled, two-hour boat cruise down the Potomac. We enjoyed coming together on a beautiful night to connect, talk about internship experiences, and enjoy the fabulous views of DC from the water!


Games at the Wharf
We were recently hosted by Mark Dorigan, an alumni parent and President of PN Hoffman, one of the Wharf development partners, and his wife Amy Fredenburg, for an alumni event at the Wharf. We played corn hole, bocce, giant Jenga, and enjoyed each other's company!  Thank you  Mark & Amy !!

On July 19th, Senator Chris Van Hollen's office organized for us a tour of the Capitol. We enjoyed ourselves and learned some very interesting facts - did you know that the statue that sits atop the Capitol dome is called the Statue of Freedom and weighs 15,000 pounds?


Nationals Game
BroadFutures interns, mentors, family and friends all came out for a night of baseball on Friday, July 26th when the Nats played the L.A. Dodgers. Even though the Nats lost, it was still a fun game.  A big thank you to the Nationals for sponsoring our tickets and hosting us for a classic American Friday night.

We are so happy you are gaining important transferable skills, Karina. We look forward to seeing what you do next!

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!
