Since April 2021, ‘Ōlelo staff members have been working with students from Project Search to create PSAs as part of our JAM (Junior Academy for Media) program. Project Search is a year-long, fully immersive vocational internship program for students with special needs. As part of Project Search training, interns are placed in participating businesses to help develop their vocational, social and communication skills. The goal is to help prepare the students for successful entry into the workforce, while in turn developing relationships with local businesses.
Within that curriculum, ‘Ōlelo had the honor of training the students to give voice and vibrancy to their creativity in the service of creating COVID-related PSAs. Check out their efforts now playing on the channels!
Hoʻomaikaiʻi to each of the students for graduating from the Project Search program: James, Skylar, Justice, Keahi, Jhobel and Kay Lien!
