LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A local program giving people with disabilities employment opportunities graduates another class of students.
Riverfront La Crosse hosted a ceremony Friday for the most recent graduates of the CORE program. CORE stands for Career Opportunity Readiness and Enhancement.
It helps people with disabilities prepare for long- term employment in our community.
"The goal is to not only be able to successfully find employment, but also maintain employment, which is a very important aspect because maintaining employment is actually sometimes more challenging than actually getting the job," said Riverfront's Kathleen Wopat.
CORE graduates learn employment skills through classroom sessions, business tours, volunteering, and interviews.
