Opportunity Builders, Inc. Selected As Career Development Partner in the TerpsEXCEED Program
OBI was recently selected as the career development partner in the TerpsEXCEED program, a new program at the University of Maryland, College Park that provides students with intellectual disabilities with an inclusive college experience. Students enrolled in the TerpsEXCEED program live on campus for two years, take college courses related to their career(s) of interest, and will participate in internships and work-based learning experiences developed by OBI. OBI’s Youth Development Specialist will serve as an adjunct professor and teach an internship course focused on discussing and problem-solving real scenarios that occur in the workplace.
OBI is excited about the opportunity to expand their impact while being part of a project that is the first of its kind in Maryland!
