The program serves as an opportunity for students to transition from high school to community employment by working Monday to Friday, generally from 8am to 3pm, during the school year. Students are provided an opportunity to participate in three 10-week internship rotations at the hospital that best meet their interests, experiences and abilities. A job coach, program instructor, and department staff work with the students (and IEP team) to help them develop the necessary interpersonal and job skills to gain meaningful employment.
