The Continental Project Has Served Students With Disabilities For Over 30 Years In Flagstaff

Many gathered at the Continental Country Club in east Flagstaff Thursday morning to hear stories and learn more about the Continental Project, which is a school-to-work transition program for students with disabilities. Students receive on-the-job training in paid positions learning a variety of job skills to prepare them for employment and increased independence as adults. The program began in 1991 by longtime Flagstaff teacher Dave Penny and Stephanie Rust. Every year 20-plus students are enrolled in the program that calls the club home. Since the program began, more than 600 students have graduated from the program. To be eligible, students must be at least 17 years old and receive educational services under an Individual Education Plan, or IEP, which is geared for students with maximum cognitive skills in the low average range.
