A special segment of the Employment program is the Internship program for youth with disabilities who want to gain work experience, improve their knowledge and skills. The program is designed as a service that connects young people who are interested in internship and employers who organize internship programs.
By submitting its biographies to the YDF employment database, young people should express their interest for attending internship, while the Youth with Disabilities Forum will send biographies to employers. In addition, YDF periodically implements projects that, in the same time, engage a specific number of interns in different companies, and publishes public calls on its web site in the News section..
