DISABILITY MENTORING DAY
BE A MENTOR!
Brevard, Orange, Osceola, & Seminole Counties
Disability Mentoring Day provides employers to act as Mentors providing opportunities to
help Mentees (adult and student job seekers) with disabilities to build confidence about their
own employability:

· Share firsthand job experiences with those interested in your career field.
· Gain access to a pool of new emerging talent.
· Recruit short and long-term interns.
· Demonstrate positive leadership in their community.
The 11th anniversary of Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) will be commemorated on
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 or other times throughout the year. Statewide activities
will coincide with National DMD events across the country and Florida has the honor of being
the first state to have 100% participation across all counties statewide!

Get Involved in DMD! Be a Mentor!

HOW CAN MY COMPANY GET INVOLVED?

Employers interested in participating in Disability Mentoring Day can contact the individuals
noted on the back of this flyer. They will assist your company with becoming a workplace
Mentor. Whether you have one employee or several interested in participating in DMD,
there is an opportunity for you.

ONE-ON-ONE JOB SHADOWING

In communities across Florida, Mentees with disabilities are matched with workplace Mentors
according to expressed career interests. This enables Mentees to learn more about a
typical day on the job and how to prepare for that particular career.

GROUP VISITS TO WORKSITES

Mentees with disabilities can tour a workplace, meet with various employees on the job and
learn first hand about different types of jobs and related opportunities within that career field.
