Project Search's first class graduates

UPMC hired 8 of its graduates

The first class of Project Search at UPMC Hamot takes the big step in the next chapter of their lives.
 
Twelve interns received their diplomas for completing the first Project Search high school transition program.  The program is designed to provide students with developmental disabilities real-life work experience and help them successfully transition from school to work life.  UPMC hired eight of the students.  One other student is now employed at the Bayfront Sheraton Hotel.
 
Bishop Dwane Broke, Eagle's Nest, says, "well this is one of the most phenominal programs I've ever been involved in over 40 years of ministry. To see these young people who are intellectually challenged coming in to this institution and landing full time employment."
 
Project Search will begin again this August with a new group of students.
