Project SEARCH Graduations
SEEC In The News
CONGRATULATIONS to the 2019 graduates of Project SEARCH! Project SEARCH is a one-year school-to-work transition program designed for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are either in their last year of high school or are recent graduates. The cornerstone of Project SEARCH is classroom learning combined with total workplace immersion in a host business and related agencies.
SEEC operates four Project SEARCH sites in conjunction with our public and private partners. The sites are located at the Smithsonian Institution, Montgomery County Government, Embassy Suites by Hilton, and the National Institutes of Health. Last week, twenty nine students celebrated successful completion of this work training program and all look forward to bright, rewarding futures as employed members of our community!
In addition to SEEC's pride in our interns and staff, we were exceptionally proud to be included in a feature article published in the Washington Post highlighting inclusive hiring, the success of the Project SEARCH model, and the experiences of the seven interns graduating from the Smithsonian program.
