Meet Brio’s Interns

Our interns encompass the ability-integrated group of teens to 20’s  to those in their 20’s to 30’s living at home or group homes. Their passions are diverse: acting, cooking, fashion, games, writing novels to films, photography, drawing, graphic design, and video/filmmaking. Through Brio’s group and individual projects, they learn new skills, discover through hard work their talents and passions, and how to achieve success through inclusion, collaboration and a dose of fun.
