Project SEARCH provides work-based individualized coaching, instruction and feedback as well as helping the young adults develop linkages to vocational rehabilitation and other adult service agencies.
It serves young people with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities. Typically, these are high school students who are on an Individual Education Program (IEP) and in their last year of high school eligibility. The program can also be adapted to serve out-of-school youth and young adults who are beyond school age.
The most important criterion for acceptance into Project SEARCH is a desire to achieve competitive employment. All participants must also complete an application and interview process before they can be selected for the program.
