UNF Student Involvement
The OCT offers an opportunity for UNF students to serve as a mentor to students with intellectual disabilities. This experience has proven to be a life changing experience to many UNF students. Learning about persons with intellectual differences first-hand serves as an indispensable experience that increases mentors’ occupational preparedness. Mentors will be exposed to the Americans with Disabilities Act Amended (which effects all industries including politics) and understand how the hiring of persons with disabilities can enhance the workplace. Past mentors have experienced personal enrichment, enhanced leadership skills, and a broadened understanding of human behavior from serving our students. Please take a look at the following options to see how we can help you as a mentor have a fulfilling experience with OCT.
