Becoming a RAMP Intern

Internships through Regional Access and Mobilization Project (RAMP) are learning opportunities guided by RAMP Team Members which occur during previously agreed upon time frames, and provide benefit to the intern’s education, coursework, and/or career goals. 

RAMP strives to ensure that all interns receive an educational and valued experience while engaging with our team of employees.  We expect interns to not only obtain valuable skills and learn about RAMP’s services, but also gain further insight into their specialized interests.  Interns will build professional relationships, and act as an important member of each respective discipline within RAMP.

RAMP internships are open to students and individuals pursuing a career in a field relevant to RAMP’s interests, specifically Independent Living and disability advocacy.  Although not a requirement, preference shall be given to individuals with disabilities.

RAMP will reimburse all job-related mileage or other qualifying expenses.
