The HOPS Project is a two semester (appx. 32 weeks) training program whose purpose is to provide instruction and support invididuals with disabilities to gain the necessary skills and experiences in work readiness in order to successfully transition into competitive integrated employment in the horticulture industry. Students have the option to become certified on a state or national level.
The program focuses primarily on four of the five core Pre-ETS areas;
