Project SEARCH ® provides employment and educational opportunities for high school seniors or post-secondary technology center students with disabilities. This nine-month, non-paid internship program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment through training and careerdevelopment. Emphasis is on employability skills and the desire to work.
The Project SEARCH “classroom” is in a business setting provided by INTEGRIS Hospital. Students’ immersion in the workplace encourages teaching and learning to take place through continuous feedback and acquisition of work skills. This program is made possible through a partnership of INTEGRIS Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon, Canadian Valley Technology Center El Reno Campus, and a variety of support agencies.
