Project SEARCH

This business-led collaboration enables young adults with disabilities to gain and maintain employment through training and career exploration. Students with IEPs are offered a workforce alternative for their last year of high school. All participants must be eligible for services with the Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). Students report to the host business, learn employability skills in the classroom and job skills through their internships.


Provides specialized skill training, preparation and support for participating interns. Recently expanded programming to include students over the age of 18 who are eligible for Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) services. The program achieves ~95% rate of employment for participating student interns, and serves students in CESAs 10 and 11.

"This program is simply life changing!"

Proud parent of a student intern, in tears, at year’s end Project SEARCH graduation ceremony.

"Project Search provides young people with disabilities the opportunity to learn valuable skills that prepare them to enter the workforce. Project Search gave my son the confidence that he needed to go out into the world and get a job. It gave him the knowledge and experience to perform tasks necessary for a job. Project Search gave my son hope and a future."


"Hard work really pays off!"
