Recruiting DO-IT Pals

Kathy Cook, DO-IT counselor/coordinator

You've heard of the DO-IT Scholars. You've heard of the DO-IT Campers. You've heard of the DO-IT Mentors. Well, watch out for the DO-IT Pals! DO-IT Pals form an electronic community of pre-college students from around the world with disabilities that support one another in their efforts to pursue college degrees and careers in science, engineering, mathematics, and technology. They communicate with each other, get advice from DO-IT Mentors and participate in projects throughout the year. To become a DO-IT Pal you must:

  • be a junior high or high school student
  • have access to a computer and the Internet
  • be interested in attending a 2- or 4-year college
  • want to communicate and work together with other students with disabilities who have common interests
