dmd logo.png

Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a large-scale national effort to promote career development for students and job-seekers with disabilities through hands-on career exploration and ongoing mentoring relationships. 

While DMD has been and continues to be officially launched the third Wednesday of each October during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), the foundation of the program has expanded from a one-day event to a year-round initiative across the country.
