Project SEARCH Applauds Graduates of Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center
Los Angeles, CA - Today PathPoint Project SEARCH interns graduate from Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. This collaborative internship is designed for individuals with disabilities to obtain work experience as they spend a year completing rotations, integrating with hospital staff and acquiring skills that will broaden their skillset and career opportunities. Many interns are even offered employment at the end of the internship. Whether offered employment directly by the hospital or whether building their skillset for future career opportunities – one thing is true; every Project SEARCH Graduate leaves with a sense of pride, a new family of support through hospital staff and opportunities of a lifetime to expand their horizons. PathPoint is proud to pilot Project SEARCH, which enables individuals with disabilities to live as valued members in their communities.
PathPoint applauds the graduates and Project SEARCH for providing a unique opportunity for individuals with disabilities to gain valuable work experience. Congrats to the Project SEARCH Graduates from Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. Class of 2016 – you did it!
