Allen C. Crocker Self-Advocate Internship
The application for 2017 internships is now closed. The next application period will open in 2018; please stay tuned.
Dr. Allen Crocker's contribution to disability science and advocacy cannot be overstated. An advocate, activist and friend to people with disabilities and their families, Dr. Crocker instilled optimism in countless families and helped open society's eyes to the beauty of people with disabilities.
In this spirit and in memory of Dr. Crocker, who passed away in October 2011, the MDSC has created the Dr. Crocker Self Advocate Internship Program.
Each Crocker Internship will give a self-advocate an opportunity to work in our Burlington office on a project of their choosing for a period of 3 to 5 months. Crocker Interns will gain valuable work experience, develop leadership skills, and earn money. And in doing so, they will advance the shared mission of the MDSC and Dr. Crocker, promoting the acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
