For our third podcast series, we hear from alumni of international exchange with disabilities who completed their programs around 10 years ago as part of our #LifeAfterExchange Campaign.

NCDE launched the #LifeAfterExchange campaign to show the ways that an international exchange experience can enhance one’s career prospects. Join us as we hear about the experiences of disabled people from all walks of life who have studied, worked, or volunteered abroad in various capacities, and who have advanced their level of professional development as a result. We hope that the stories of this diverse group of interviewees drives home the message that no two experiences abroad are alike, but a #LifeAfterExchange can have a powerful impact on professional success.

The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange is a project of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, designed to increase the participation of people with disabilities in international exchange between the United States and other countries, and is supported in its implementation by Mobility International USA
