Project SEARCH

Project SEARCH is a one year internship program for students with disabilities in their twelfth or thirteenth year of high school, whose goal is competitive employment. 

This model supports the teaching and learning process as well as the acquisition of marketable employability skills. During the course of one school year, students participate in three internships within the hospital setting as a way to explore and develop work skills in a variety of career paths.

A planning team has been assembled with representation from ProMedica Bixby and Herrick Hospitals, Lenawee Intermediate School District, Michigan Rehabilitation Services, Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Michigan, and Lenawee County Community Mental Health Authority. The role of this team is to design internships in ProMedica Bixby and Herrick Hospitals, recruit potential student participants, and provide support services for optimal student success throughout the internship experience.
