HIRE ME Program

What is HIRE ME?

HIRE ME (Helping Individuals Reach Employment Milestones Everyday) is a collaboration between Big Spring and Shippensburg School Districts and the Special Education program at Shippensburg University. The purpose of HIRE ME is to prepare students with disabilities (SWD) for the transition into competitive employment by practicing hard and soft work skills. The districts bring SWD to Shippensburg University to work at several practice work sites. University students supervise as the SWD as their job coach while they are working.
