Workforce Recruitment Program

What is WRP?

The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) connects motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities to federal employers across the nation for summer internships and full-time jobs. Since the program's expansion in 1995, over 7,000 students and recent graduates have received temporary and permanent employment opportunities through the WRP.
