Employment Preparation

One of the main outcomes we SUPPORT for our students is competitive and integrated employment. We prepare our students for this reality through a variety of experiences during their two years in college.

A highlight of our program is the opportunity for our students to participate in multiple work internships, both on-campus and in the surrounding community.
