Families are invited to attend a Johnson County Developmental Supports Project SEARCH Informational Meeting to learn more about the program. The meeting will be held 6-8 p.m. and families can choose to attend one of two sessions: Jan. 23 or Feb. 4, 2020 at the Johnson County Administration Building, located at 111 S.

Project SEARCH is an education and employment program model for individuals with an intellectual or developmental disability 18 years of age or older who are interested in community employment. JCDS is eager to implement their seventh year of Project SEARCH beginning in August 2020.
Interns will spend their time immersed in a host business site, completing three internship rotations designed to teach them marketable, transferable skills. The goal of the program is employment for each intern -- defined as a minimum of 16 hours per week in a competitive, integrated setting, earning prevailing wage or higher.
