Internships Prepare Students for Work

PHOENIX -- A program at a northeast Phoenix high school is helping students with special-education challenges land jobs despite a tough economy.
The Work Experience Program at Horizon High School has established an internship this year that prepares students for careers in the hospitality and food-service industries. "It's a program designed to provide an opportunity for students with disabilities to develop skills and experiences related to working in a competitive workplace," said Richard Walker, a special-education teacher who founded the program.
