 Project SEARCH of Butler County is a unique, business-led, one-year, school-to-work program that takes place entirely at the workplace. Total workplace immersion facilitates a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and relevant job-skills training through strategically designed internships.This program empowers young adults with disabilities to gain and maintain employment .


The Project SEARCH Model


Since it's inception in 1995 Project Search has grown to 45 states and 350+ programs internationally with a 73% success rate in securing competitive employment.

This success is achieved through close collaboration between families, education, businesses, and service agencies to provide vocational and life skills training and educational support to the Project SEARCH Intern.

During a period of one school year, students participate in employment and social skills curriculum.

Community based instruction, and three non-paid internships help students to learn appropriate social, communication, and problem solving skills along with leadership techniques.

The Project SEARCH High School to Work Transition Program serves students with disabilities between the ages of 18-21. Students are selected for the program based on their motivation and likelihood for success.

The result is competent, motivated employees who often exhibit better work habits, higher attendance rates, and lower job turnover than the general population.

Each day the student reports to the jobsite where they learn job skills and receive guidance from their job coach "on-site" providing a strong student support system to ensure employee success.
