PROJECT SEARCH

WHAT IS IT?
Project SEARCH is an international program model empowering young adults with significant disabilities to make a successful transition from school to adult life. Participants are taught relevant, marketable skills while immersed in the working world. The Project SEARCH High School Transition Program is a unique, business led, one year school-to-work program that takes place entirely at the workplace. Total workplace immersion facilitates a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and hands-on training through worksite rotations. West-MEC is proud to partner with Project SEARCH and offer these services to our community.

WHO CAN APPLY?
For a high school Project SEARCH program, the students need to be at least 18 years old to be considered for the program. Most student interns are between the ages of 18 and 22, but individuals in the 23–30 age range can be included if funding is available to support participants that are beyond school eligibility. Adult programs typically target young adults ages 30 and under however, consideration of adults older than 30 could be an individual site decision.
