What is Project SEARCH?

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 10th year of Project SEARCH beginning in August 2023.

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.

Follow these events on Facebook for the latest updates. To learn more about JCDS, please visit us online at jcds.org.
