Rockford Rotary is being asked to help conduct Mock Interviews for the  Rock Valley College RAISE Program from 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM on Wednesday, April 22nd and Friday, April 24th.  Signup sheets will be available at future meetings.
     The Rock Valley Academic Institute for Successful Employment (RAISE) program is a collaborative initiative involving Rock Valley College, local not-for-profit organizations, and local school districts to provide opportunities for adults who have intellectual disabilities to participate in inclusive post-secondary educational opportunities, gain independent living and social skills, and develop the skills needed for competitive employment.
     RAISE is designed to address student's unique learning needs by providing a comprehensive approach that includes career exploration, specialized vocational and academic instruction, and opportunities for social integration.  The RAISE program is based on a learning environment which takes advantage of the social aspects of campus and community life, and as such most courses are held on the RVC main campus.
