What is a Prepared4ALL Trainee?

The Prepared4ALL logo shows three figures sitting at table. Together, they say Prepared4ALL, shown in a speech bubble.

Prepared4ALL Trainees gain real-world experience as they work to develop relationships between disability organizations and local emergency preparedness entities. Prepared4ALL Trainees support local disability organizations, conduct research responsive to community needs, and build leadership skills. The Prepared4ALL Traineeship is open to any AUCD trainee or interested student. Prepared4ALL Trainees often complete an internship or capstone project as part of their role.

Prepared4ALL Trainees play an essential role in making sure that disability inclusion is always at the emergency preparedness planning table. Learn more about Prepared4ALL and how trainees can get involved below.

How is Prepared4ALL funded?   

Prepared4ALL is a one-year, CDC-funded project that aligns with CDC’s public health jurisdiction on planning and preparedness. AUCD advises on disability inclusion and coordinates with sister grantees, NACCHO and ASTHO, to ensure that a disability perspective is included in their efforts and so that there is no duplication of efforts.  

Do Prepared4ALL Trainees receive a stipend?  

Prepared4ALL engages local organizations and AUCD trainees that see this work as connected to efforts that they are already compensated to do. We do not provide additional funding.  AUCD understands  that organizations may not be able to weave this work into existing efforts, so the Prepared4ALL online training and Public Health is for Everyone online toolkit are freely available to all.
