CORD's summer youth employment program!

CORD's Transitional Internship Program (TIP) is beginning another session for students with disabilities. Pre-employment training on interviewing, communicating at work, workplace etiquette, disability rights and more! Paid internships in local businesses!


Are you a student with disabilities who has never worked before?

If you are between the ages of 16 and 21, have a disability, live in the Mid Cape area, are currently enrolled in high school and have never worked before, then this program is for you. CORD will provide pre-employment skills training and placement in a paid internship for at least 12 hours per week for 7 weeks.

Interested students and their parents/guardians must attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, July 6 at either 12:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. Light meals will be provided. Call CORD now to reserve your spot.

CORD attempts to maintain a scent-free environment. Please do not wear any scented products to CORD's office.


Do you own a business and would like to help youths with disabilities gain job experience?

CORD's Transitional Internship Program (TIP) for youths with disabilities depends on the generosity and support of our local businesses to give our interns their first job experience. Youths will receive pre-employment skills training before being placed on an internship. CORD pays the wages of the interns.
