Project SEARCH is a worksite-based school-to-work program that provides employment and education opportunities for students with disabilities transitioning from high school. The program benefits employers by increasing workforce diversity and reducing recruitment and training costs. Many employers experience improved job retention, enhanced community image and increased customer satisfaction.
Project SEARCH originated at the Cincinnati Children's Medical Center and in Indiana is administered by FSSA’s Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services under the Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VRS). Each Project Search site partners with Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, a host business, the affiliated school district(s), and a community service provider.
