Few students graduate in January, and most don’t have jobs waiting for them. That wasn’t the case Friday in Harrisburg.
Five people with disabilities graduated from a program called Project Search. Goodwill gives these students nine months of skills training, and Dauphin County rotates them through their departments, giving them real-life experience.
The program also recruits parents of these graduates to help out.
Two graduating students already landed jobs, and two others start new jobs next week.
