Project SEARCH is a one-year internship program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities that prepares them for competitive, integrated employment by totally immersing them in a work environment.
Syracuse University is a certified host business site for this international model employment preparation program, developed at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where students participate in three internships to explore a variety of career paths and to acquire transferable and marketable job skills. Our goal is for all of our students to graduate from the program with competitive, inclusive employment.
Qualifying InclusiveU students are placed in three 10-week placements on campus in work-sites that are of interest to them, including the campus bookstore, food services, and auxillary services. There is also a transition week between placements where an instructor teaches valuable job readiness skills.
