Rewarding on-campus job!

Temple’s Institute on Disabilities runs Leadership & Career Studies, a four-year certificate program providing young adults with intellectual disabilities an authentic college experience while developing academic abilities, career aspirations, work skills and independence at Temple University.

Leadership & Career Studies students take academic courses, explore college life and develop career experiences based on their interests and goals. All Leadership & Career Studies students are required to complete a variety of employment experiences both on and off Temple’s Main Campus.

Each Leadership & Career Studies student is matched with a coach who is a matriculated Temple student. All students participate in a wide variety of activities, events, and organizations within Temple University.

Leadership & Career Studies evolved from the Institute’s two-year program, the Academy for Adult Learning, established in 2008. Photos from the Academy for Adult Learning classes 2008-2017

You can learn more about the program at their Open House on Tuesday, December 4 from 11 am – 1 pm in Student Center 200B

Be A Coach!

Each Leadership & Career Studies student is matched with a Temple student coach who supports them in accessing the university’s rich resources. Current Temple students in good standing are recruited, hired, trained, and supervised by Leadership & Career Studies staff at the Institute on Disabilities to serve as effective and supportive mentors. Coaches support students as they participate in academic, recreational, and social activities.
