Frequently Asked Questions Employment

What is the summer jobs program for students with disabilities?

The summer jobs program for college students with disabilities is called the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP). This program is co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy and the Department of Defense. The WRP aims to provide summer work experience, and in some cases, permanent employment, for college students with disabilities. The program develops partnerships with other Federal agencies, each of which makes a commitment to provide summer jobs.

The Department of Defense Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) provides assistive technology and accommodation services to all WRP participants working for the Federal Government for the summer.
