Some area college students are spending their summer vacation with children in the community thanks to one program.
Students who are a part of the Oneida County College Students Corps are able intern at various area organizations to gain experience in their chosen field.
One junior at Hamilton College says she is a neuro-science major wanting to do autism research.
She is now currently interning with the Kelberman Center through the program.
"I think more than anything it solidified that I want to study autism after working hands on with these kids. You are seeing first hand on what your research could assist or if you're a doctor who you're working with. Its starts with the children. It starts young," says Sidika Kajtezovic.
Upstate Cerebral Palsy has eight college students interning with the Kelberman Center's summer day camps in Clinton.
