This internship program is for students who want to develop creative and alternative teaching practices to support and encourage the individualized needs of persons with disabilities. While working in collaboration with a local foundation, El Nomad allows students to assume active roles promoting the support of government, community, and partnering organizations, as well as the development of social policy and laws.
For example, the foundation currently has an empty space they are working towards transforming into an English classroom. Students will be required to design the layout of the classroom and inventively put together resources that will be used by language teachers for English instruction class. We also give our students opportunities to do site visits alongside staff. These visits allow students into private homes and schools accommodating persons with disabilities and run assessments geared toward further improving these social and physical environments.
