Project SEARCH is a one-year, business-led, unpaid internship program for students with disabilities in their last year of high school that takes place entirely at a host business site. It provides students who want to work a chance to explore careers and develop transferable job skills. The combination of instruction and immersion in the workplace prepares young adults with disabilities to make successful transitions from school to productive adult life. The Goal: Independent adults working in a competitive environment. Current Bergen County Project SEARCH host business sites: Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack Holy Name Medical Center, Teaneck Project SEARCH is a collaborative partnership between business, education, workforce and government agencies, vocational rehabilitation, community rehabilitation providers, long-term support agencies, and families. In Bergen County, Project SEARCH is coordinated by the Bergen County Workforce Development Board. True collaboration among partner agencies is essential. This leads to seamless transition services and sustainability through braided funding streams.
