Project MOST (Maximizing Opportunities for a Successful Transition) is a whole-person approach to developing self-independence while training in an industrial setting to be a productive employee. Students gain hands-on/on-the-job work experience in an industrial manufacturing setting and real-world life situational experience in the classroom and in the community. The Project MOST curriculum utilizes industry and educational professionals to instruct students and help them obtain full-time employment without the financial burden of post-secondary training.
Project MOST started in August 2018 as an industry-driven training internship created by corporate leaders to address regional workforce development challenges. Project MOST focused on providing practical hands-on/on-the-job training to students with an IEP (Individual Education Plan). These students can do the Fast Track option or the 9-month option. This is an unpaid internship.
