Project SEARCH is a one-year program designed for students with disabilities who have a goal of employment, have met graduation requirements and are between the ages of 18-21 years of age (preferably nearing the end of their FAPE eligibility). This national model for high school transition and workforce development provides career exploration and training opportunities for young adults with disabilities. Participants learn complex employability and job skills while completing three, ten-week internships within a host business. Individualized job development and placement in competitive employment occurs based on each person's experiences, interests, strengths and skills. Workplace accommodations and on-the-job coaching are provided during and after the program as needed.
