|About||The Project SEARCH High School Transition Program is a unique, business led, nine month school-to-work program that takes place entirely at the workplace.|
|Mission||A collaborative effort between Rice Lake Weighing Systems and professional agencies to develop internships for youth with disabilities that will teach work skills, provide assistance in achieving their career goals and enhancing their lives.|
Interns who successfully complete Project SEARCH see many lifelong benefits:
-Confidence in their abilities to learn job skills and become a self-advocate
-A guided transition from student life to working adult life with lifelong skills
-Opportunities to learn what they want (and realize what they don't want) in a prospective job
-Increased self-esteem, work ethic and relationship-building skills
-A brighter outlook to be a gainfully employed and independent adult
-Receive the tools needed to set goals and turn experiences into resume and job interview assets
Project SEARCH interns have an 88% success rate of procuring gainful employment after their internship is completed.
For Project SEARCH to succeed, interns need a passion to improve their vocational skills and a desire to work. Individuals must apply for the program, and have appropriate hygiene, some communication skills and the determination to learn new employability skills.
