Founded in 1981, Mobility International (MIUSA) is a nonprofit organization that empowers people with disabilities through international exchange and development to achieve their human rights. MIUSA coordinates leadership exchange programs and seminars, serving those with cognitive, hearing, learning, psychiatric, physical, systemic, vision and other disabilities.
International exchange interns help coordinate and facilitate the exchange programs; they are also involved with development activities, such as camping, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. International development and disability interns assist in the administration of grants to make the field of international development more inclusive of people with disabilities. Interns assigned to the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange work on the development and dissemination of resources on the topic of international exchange and disability. Finally, Interns may also participate in several International Women with Disabilities Leadership and Networking projects, which aim to help women with disabilities worldwide.
Open to college students, recent college graduates and grad students. Applicants must have demonstrated interest and experience in disability and international issues.
