Montgomery College Graduate Transition Program Student Keshav Gupta recently earned a coveted internship at the Kennedy Center.

Keshav Gupta was one of three people selected to participate in the fall Experiential Education Initiative Internship program at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The program has been offered twice a year for 11 years with the aim to give people who have disabilities opportunities to expand their work experiences. Interns also participate in the arts by attending productions and monthly seminars at the Center, and contribute to the Center's workforce at its busiest times of year. In lieu of a stipend, the interns receive free admissions to performances, travel expenses, and free lunch in the Kennedy Center Cafe.

Keshav was a 2011 Montgomery College, Graduate Transition Program Graduate, (GTP).

The Graduate Transition Program at Montgomery College, Rockville Campus, is a custom-tailored learning community program that offers students a unique post-secondary opportunity to further their formal education. The objective of the program is to enable students, while in a supportive college environment, to transition to greater independent living through developmentally appropriate educational, vocational, and life-skill services. This two-year, tuition-based, credit-free certificate program focuses on basic academic skills, and enhances students' potential success as productive citizens in the community.

The College schedule consists of two 14-week semesters, for two years. Students receive academic instruction three hours per day, Monday through Friday. Small class sizes, experienced faculty and staff, and individual classroom assistants encourage an interactive and dynamic learning environment designed specifically for students with special needs. Classes offered include Reading and Writing, Science, Health, Anatomy, World History and Current Events, Communications and Public Speaking, Art, Computers, and more.

Our mission is to empower individuals to live, learn, work, and participate in the social fabric of our community. We believe, given the opportunity and proper support, all individuals can achieve academic success, successful careers, and personal growth.
