Project SEARCH is a 10-month internship program for people with disabilities in their last year of school through early adulthood. It is targeted to those whose goal is competitive employment.
The program takes place at Monmouth Medical Center where total immersion in the workplace facilitates the teaching and learning process, as well as the acquisition of employability and marketable work skills. Interns participate in three unpaid internships to explore a variety of career paths.
Interns work with a team that includes their school, family, Project SEARCH instructor, skills trainer/job developer, and Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) counselor or Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) representative to create an employment goal and support the student during this important transition to the workplace.
The interns begin their day learning employability skills in a classroom setting at Monmouth Medical Center. After this hour long class, the interns move to their department at the hospital where they spend approximately five hours. At the end of the day, the interns return to the classroom to reflect on their day, discuss challenges, and evaluate progress.
The goal of Project SEARCH is competitive employment for each intern utilizing the skills they learned during the program.
