31 students participating in a formal graduation after receiving full time jobs, thanks to the Eagles Nest Employability initiative.

The program involves four weeks of training with founder Bishop Dwane Brock, teaching basic career skills like time management and communication. Then, the students participate in a four-week internship at UPMC Hamot where they learn specific job skills in the field. 

Once the program is completed, they apply for open positions and transition into full time worker status.

“Many of them come from and under privileged background and this afforded them an opportunity to take a different direction in their life and enter a career as a healthcare professional,”said Jim Donnelly, Chief Nursing Officer at UPMC Hamot.
The program is provided through a partnership with the Eagles Nest Leadership Corporation and UPMC Hamot.
