Ben Sunderman is on the show to talk about the great success he’s had because of a program called Project Search. The program provides employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities. Through Project Search, Ben started out as an intern at Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas Frisco. After the internship, he then became an employee!
Embassy Suites by Hilton partnered with Project SEARCH as an extension of “Open Doors,” a commitment started by Hilton in 2014 with the mission of helping at least one million young people reach their full potential by 2019
The program provides real-life work experience combined with training in employability and independent living skills to help youths with significant disabilities make successful transitions from school to productive adult life.
Steve Harvey surprises Ben by inviting one of his mentors to the show who has made a big impact to his success. That’s not all. Since Ben is also captain of his basketball team, the Frisco Flyers, Steve gave Ben $5,000 to go towards uniforms and equipment!
