Meet Project SEARCH students from Richland County

Meet some of the Richland One School District students who are part of Project SEARCH in this short video from WLTX. Instead of attending regular classes, the students selected for Project SEARCH have spent their last year of high school doing unpaid internships at Embassy Suites. They have become immersed in the work environment and learned a variety of transferable job skills.

The students will be part of a graduation ceremony to celebrate their progress, accomplishments, and completion of high school on June 4 at Embassy Suites

A collaboration between VR, Richland School District One, and Embassy Suits Project SEARCH is an international school-to-work program model designed to place high school students with disabilities into a work environment, with the ultimate goal of competitive employment.
