Pipeline for Students on the Autism Spectrum in the IE


Pipeline for Students on the Autism Spectrum in the IE

Be part of the change. Join a team of creative minds transforming local communities. At California State University San Bernardino, the Office of Pre-College Programs (OPP) is breaking down cultural barriers creating equitable solutions for education. OPP is seeking an approachable individual able to develop programs and convey novel ideas to a diverse group of professionals. The VISTA will coordinate the development of a K-12 pipeline for students on the autism spectrum in the Inland Empire and plan the development of an affinity center at CSUSB. The purpose of the project will be to create a high school to postsecondary education pipeline for hearing-impaired students, as well as to establish an affinity center at CSUSB to provide opportunities for community building, networking and career development. The project will establish a partnership between the Inland Regional Center, the CSUSB Office of Pre-College Programs and CSUSB Students with Disabilities (SSD). The intention of this partnership will be to provide support to prospective college students by developing opportunities to build community amongst students on the spectrum throughout the region. Additionally, although CSUSB provides support services, there is no designated space on campus where students with disabilities can build community and a sense of belonging. An affinity center will be developed to build community and support, and serve as a space for career development workshops. Employers will be invited to talk to students about employment opportunities and their commitment to full inclusion.
