College Internship Program in Berkeley, California

CIP is one of the most comprehensive programs in the world for assisting young adults with learning differences to succeed in college, employment, and independent living.
Our mission is to inspire independence and expand the foundation on which young adults can build happy and productive lives.

CIP offers Full-Year and Summer Programs for young adults on Autism Spectrum and with learning differences at 5 locations. We focus on executive functioning, social skills, independent living skills, and much more with the goal of helping the students move in the direction of successful independent living.

Summer@CIP is a 2-week summer program for students entering the 10th, 11th and 12th grades as well as recent high school graduates. Participants will spend two weeks on a college/university campus learning valuable skills and gaining experience in independent living, social skills, executive functioning and organizational skills.

Mploy Job Readiness Program is designed for young adults ages 18 to 26, who are interested in entering the workforce and transitioning to independent living. Participants develop employment readiness skills, learn self-advocacy, build friendships, and take part in activities designed to help them prepare for their future.

Student criteria:

  • Documented diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome, high-functioning Autism, Nonverbal Learning Difference, PDD-NOS, ADHD, or dyslexia
  • Emotional, behavioral, and psychological stability
  • High level of motivation to meet program goals
  • Potential to live and attend college or career program independently
  • Ages typically 18 to 26 for Full-Year and Mploy, and 14-18 for Summer Program
