Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Mentors will partner with their students to gradually scaffold the skills needed to obtain and maintain a job. The program administration and mentors make it a priority to establish appropriate job placements with recommended support for each EduCare student. In the fourth academic year, every student will be responsible for attaining an internship placement that meets their interests. EduCare will act as a bridge between the student and their internship site to support their student in their practice towards employment. The student will gradually work on the following activities to prepare for life in the workplace:

  • Vocational interest inventory
  • Resume building
  • Interview skills
  • Professionalism and work-place social skills
  • Time management skills
  • Self-advocating for needs
  • Identifying work-place modifications for one’s needs
  • Financial management educational seminars and activities
