Explore Careers and Develop Job Skills

Project SEARCH provides senior high school students a chance to explore careers and develop transferable job skills.

The combination of instruction and immersion in the workplace prepares young adults with disabilities to make successful transitions from school to productive adult life.

Abilities provides the skill trainer and support onsite to the Project Search interns at the host location. This is done in partnership with Atlantic Health Newton Medical Center, NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities, and the Sussex County Educational Services Commission.

Benefits of Project Search to the Students:

The goal for each participant is community employment!
