ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A group of interns graduated from a program called “Project SEARCH” on Tuesday.

The program allows students with disabilities to get hands-on work experience. It is hosted by RPS, so it follows a class-based curriculum throughout the school year. Organizers said that, even after the interns find a job, RAMP is still there to offer any support they need.

“It’s really awesome, it’s awesome here,” intern Ian White said.

“Our interns really enjoy the program, so it’s a great opportunity for students,” Abygail Franklin of RAMP added.

The segment may still be available online at the WKVO Television website.
