Abstract

This article provides an introduction to mentor, near-peer, and peer support as they apply to promoting the academic and career success of young people with disabilities. The authors discuss specific benefits of mentoring and document access challenges encountered by students with disabilities. They present a case study of a successful Internet-based mentoring community for college-bound youth with disabilities. The experiences and recommendations shared can be used by others to design, implement, and sustain mentoring communities online.
